I wish that I was beautiful for you

On Saturday I went to Brooklyn and took a lot of pictures for a friend. Then she took this one of me:

(for the gender confused. hee.)

and I wish that I was beautiful for you
I wish that I could change things with a pill
for a quick fix modern tonic that would change me with one swallow
I would kill
watch folks line up to pay
to stare at me all day
but I’d turn them all away if that be thy will
one tiny little innocuous pill
but a wish is just a pin in a swimming pool of needles

Sometimes life is easier when certain aspects of it are blurred.

Bittersweet lyrics too.
