a pretty girl

This is my (rather reluctant) translation of 「きれいな女の子」.

a pretty girl
         is an interesting
     thing

              fingernails 
              the colour of lipstick
                  the sound of her smile

       she lowers her eyes
    where
          is she looking

                a pretty girl
                       is a dangerous
                    thing

            the colour of words
                the price of beauty
                the sound of silence

     she looks down
    what
         is she thinking
