Sightly

Sightly

A Poem by Robert Trakofler (Bad Bunny)

__Sightly__

 

 

She was… rightly sightly

Her face tattooed pon her shoulder

Looked back… slightly spitely

 ever affixed this beholder

Smiles back… so contritely

Made her real face look so much colder

it seems… so unlikely

but her skin sketch swayed to scold her

 

She was… slightly sightly   

Her vanity did enfold her

But not wrapped… too tightly 

For that her emblem cajoled her  

It glowed much… more brightly  

Seems much more true than the holder

 Self worship… unsightly

For this conceit has remold her

“Ah! Vanitas Vanitatum! Which of us is happy in this world? Which of us has desire? or, having it, is satisfied?” William Makepiece Thackeray

This is the beauty of poetry, to be able to convey in just 16 lines, a whole novel.

Beccy.

Aha, the dream revealed, love the tat, lol, I like the fact that the tattoo seems to have more live and vitality than the actual vain f**k who inspired this, is that in case she forgets her passport, lol

I couldn’t in the end help but feel sorry for her tho hopefully she did a cover up:/

probably keeps adding a few wrinkles as the years unfold
Her vanity did enfold her
But not wrapped… too tightly

Just loved these lines Bunny. Nothing wrong in loving oneself as long as it doesn't get obsessive. I totally relate...

Nicely rhymed comment on narcissism, Bunny. When your tattoos start talking to you, it's time to go off the sauce.

Hi Dave I try very hard not to look at myself when I wake up LOL it’s not pretty
Ahhh ... the ultimate in vanity! Made me chuckle as I read the first time, then had a wicked thought on the second reading; the image of her bequeathing her skin to a banjo maker and used it as the head under the bridge to musically immortalize her face for prosperity - sorry - just one of my 'funny' moments reviewing - great write my friend! :-)

This is a fantastic poem! It's hitting on all cylinders -- wordplay, message, mood, attitude! I've been dyed & sent to heaven! *wink! wink!* I do remember our conversation about this & it's truly amazing that you took it in this direction. The image on the arm is such a leap of imagination. I love that your word choices feel light & friendly & conversational, even tho there's a subtle slam to your message, this does not feel like a hateful or vengeful msg. If anything, a little on the sympathetic side. I love a portrait of someone who seems unlikable, but then the portrait is done with such heart, you like this person despite their tragic flaw. I'm totally f*****g inspired by this . . . it hits on a note I've been exploring, with regard to getting back to writing my next book (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
