Dress Up

Feel the wispy barbs as they
Ease across your tender
Arm like a make-up brush
Teasing little girls who
Hope they won't get caught
Emulating models with cheeks as
Red as a cardinal

Lovely Laurie! An appropriate read for my day, as my granddaughter is with me and she's playing dress-up!

:-) My youngest is pretty much out of the dress up stage (just make up now), but I can remember finding red and purple fake boa feathers all over the house.

I could feel those bristles on my skin and see that blush. Excellent!
