My Daughter Is Beautiful - Poem by Juan Olivarez

My daughter is beautiful
I once told a friend.
A woman friend.

She responded with
I don't know
Your daughter
I have never seen her.

As if knowing
Or having seen my daughter
Was a prerequisite
For beauty.

As if my daughter's beauty
Was somehow connected
To her approving eye.
poor deluded woman.

    Amen, and right-on! I have two wonderful, phenomenal, beautiful daughters, so I completely understand, and agree. Excellent poem Juan. (Report) Reply
