from the candy bin at Chew's
made me feel dramatic. Seductive.
Tough. From the time I switched
from Lip Smackers
to tubes of real stuff,
I was an addict. I needed more.
It turned mundane to magic,
helped me find my muse.
Then came life of hardcore stick,
capsules of confidence, quick fix
of power stashed in glove box,
pockets, purse, and drawers.
This butt sprung girl still adds kick
to her patina. I love the trickit turns, the journey in my head
with just a twist of red.
