Winning the Prize

Women adorn themselves 
in the latest fashion, clothing
identified by designers, even
in cold weather they appear
sleeveless with shoulders bare
catching the attention of the cameras
vying for the best dressed
but any attention is better
than none.They pose for the most
flattering angle, letting their smile do the rest
standing beside men, who in contrast,
are dressed the same, each hoping
to be the one chosen for the prize
for a few hours of work, pretending
to live another person's life
swept up in the façade of Hollywood
a place where people sell their souls
to be the darling of the hour for a trophy

and accolades from their peers.
