Geisha


Modern Geisha woman
your powdered white face
pink cheeks red lips black hair
a girl really as in the old days

You don't play by the old rules
you are your own advocate
choose the rules of the game
powered by you no one else

  1. It reminds me of the "Memoirs of a geisha" I loved that movie and I love the way you described the geisha here! Bravo!
