I Feel Pretty


Beauty is a trauma
We're all trapped in, 
Whether we seem to have it or not,
But you can escape that
Through careful self-delusion
                                                (And Soul Cycle)

Think of it as empowerment
Through willful deafness. 
It only works, of course, 
When it serves the company line,
Since even our confidence must be
And sold back to us with
Convenient application brushes.
