This poem is not about you

an insult to be beautiful,
only looked at first
not given the time or energy,
to see what else there is
though if to be judged so shallow,
why want the attention
of the one who did you wrong?
to think it is normal, to be so vain that people should care
about what a shell holds
you are so smart, so brave
to be upset that our attention is not held captive
a victim, a pariah
when finally noticed
