Murder, Barbies and Videotape
“Oops, I think I killed her,” Robert Chambers enacting the murder
of Jennifer Levin with Barbie Dolls on videotape after many
allegations that Levin was the perpetrator
Mimic your victim with a blonde Barbie doll.
Fingers cajole soft PVC to speak
like a puppet, shrieking, soprano drawl.
Pop off a head, mistake of your own strength.
A party pantomime videotape leaks
by one of your peers you think you have charmed —
eyes and ears you trusted to be discreet.
Look in the camera. Admit the harm.
Was it a female who turned over the tape
contradicting your assertions in court?
Sex diaries, assaults, an attempted rape,
your victimization in police reports?
Do you regret you allowed them to see
that murderers play also with Barbies?
