It's All Lemon Chiffon
it's all lemon chiffon
she sighed in a fifties dress shop
in a dream.
don't you have any other colours?
something in strawberry pink?
or Cinderella jump-rope-rhyming green?
you'll see, it's not the frothiness I mind.
the skirts fuller than full moons.
all as they should be.
the sequined, beaded tops that shine
uncompromised as a sweetheart neckline.
I'm just not a lemon drop person
dropping a line or two on forsythia stationary
when there's time to say thank you
for the yellow everything.
it was just what I wanted.
