In line at lunch, I’m buying
gum & thigh high hoes
& fish nets for my evening fun.
The man behind me smiles.
the freshest breath in this place &
the silkiest thighs any fingers could trace.
According to the box,
I’ll feel “elegant, bold, playful and sexy”
in the sheer, soft-black, lace-top hosiery
Hand wash only
My gum is long lasting,
It will not promote tooth decay.
If I am not completely satisfied,
all I have to do is return product
to the address listed below
for a full refund.
In the car park with my bag
the wind flows over me like 90% nylon
with a scent of polyester.
& as I return my credit card to its niche
inside my wallet
I think to myself:
You can’t put a price on
with every avenue open to you
all eyes appreciative as you make your way
through this multi-plex,
on sure & stylish
