Recycled Beauties: Poem from Collage

I made a 12-page collaged booklet using (among other things) images and text from a book of pin-ups. The poem below is a reconfiguring of the text which makes up the booklet: each page in the booklet has a few lines on it, and here I've condensed and changed a bit. Recycled Beauties Not movie stars, much more than sleek limbs followed by countless others, these girls who are now elderly women, girls of a specific time, a specific war, still promise a wonderful postwar world. Things are peaceful where they wear sheer dressing gowns or nothing at all.
