Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey

Her soft and hard thighs

show through the fabric of expensive pants,

and her eyes look like they might cry.

I don’t know who she’s talking to today—

Some physics expert who has found light,

and she wants some, too.

I know she sees me through the television screen,

when she looks this way and just barely smiles.

I know Oprah is thinking

about what does she need to learn today,

and why is this lady staring at my thighs?
