Alone in My House

Alone in my house,
I am as talented as Regina Spektor
(but my piano is at the cleaners.)
I can write like Virginia Woolf
(but my dress has no pockets for stones.)
I am as witty as Dorothy Parker
(but I don't really care for gin.)
I am as alluring as Cleopatra
(but my asp is in my other pants.)
Alone in my house,
I am Meryl Streep
I am The Marquise de Merteuil
I am Shirley Jackson
I am Marie Currie.

I am not feeling like myself today
(but maybe I am you.)
