The Abandoned Doll

By: Stefania Mendolia

(Italicized text taken by Margaret Atwood Five Poems for Dolls)

There have always been dolls
as long as there have been people.
In the trash heaps and abandoned temples
the dolls pile up;
the sea is filling with them.

A self-fulfilling prophecy

Forged by the fear she’ll be forgotten

“Pick me up and play with me”

Adorned in costume, but she is still cotton

Beady eyes, painted lips, locks of curls and rose hips

As a toy, a girl, a woman; an encapsulated eclipse…

What causes them?
Or are they gods, causeless,
something to talk to
when you have to talk,
something to throw against the wall?

Stoic on her shelf, surrendered to your care

I know that I am here, but you are barely there…

A doll is a witness
who cannot die,
with a doll you are never alone.

With a doll you are never alone.
