She has removed her thick eye lenses
has thrown away her stock of strepsils,
has let her cat off the leash.
She is desperately waiting,
to feel herself in her new avatar.

I interpret it to mean that she changed her appearance, changed the way she speaks, and letting out her inner animal, hoping that the confidence that she is portraying on the outside will make her feel more confident inside. I like the imagery of the avatar.

Nice poem.

*I don't think there should be a comma after waiting...* ...Commas aren't typically placed there in that sentence.

I like your interpretation. Though by thick eye lenses I wanted to talk about prejudiced mind, by strepsils I wanted to say that she was always trying to be pretentious and leash on cat was about habit of controlling and restraining others......kind of self realisation ( that is an Avatar).

thanks Happie
