Sweet Endowment


Scanty summer froufrou
diverts lustful eyes
allaying one's reaction
to heated goodbyes.

Very similar in content to my piece - you just captured it in a much tighter but nevertheless wonderful gem.

So much is covered,(and uncovered)in this brief, witty poem. Sometimes fewer words say it all.

What an interesting irony . . that her scanty frou-frou should divert his lustful eyes. From . . . ?
