China Doll

Tell me once more
how you treasure my
silky locks
held together with a pair of chopsticks
how you crave my
porcelain skin
smooth as the china in your display cabinet.

Tell me once more
how you treasure my
docile smiles
perpetual reassurances of your savior complex
how you crave my
patiently-clasped hands
eagerly awaiting your every command.

Tell me once more
how you treasure my
exotic-ness
for I am the strange trophy you’d like to show off to the world
how you crave my
Asian-ness
for I am the China Doll you’d like to add to your trophy collection.
