Poetry ~ Too Bright!

I’m much too bright
in turquoise and white
to be out on a summer’s day!

Why? you ask,
as I stifle a gasp
and the mirror reflects
my dismay!

As every girl knows
white widens the load
and is made for the petite
and the Fae!

Oh, those tiny creatures
with skeletal features
can wear white when skies
turn gray!

For the rest of our kind
with our curvy behinds
we’ll mask in our black
and dine on cherry parfaits!
