It’s a tee. It’s a dress. It’s the new Graphic T-shirt Dress.

brown sugar trick

You’re a peach
you said
and I tried to smile

But really
we both know
I’m not that sweet

I think of pomegranates
where burnished skin
hides the bruise
at my core

and I spit seeds
as I climb
above ground

but most days
I’m a lemon
my citrus smile
is an acquired taste

but once
you know
the brown sugar trick

you spit
my pips
with joy

A little musing while I work……because what’s the sweet without the sour?
