New Women’s Chiffon Tops. They’re just so chiffon-y.

Sugar and spice and all things nice

They all tell her
“honey it’s a heartbreak waiting to happen.”
as she recounts
sheepishly
how he bought her a melted
ice cream late this afternoon
that stayed sticky
and sweetly
on her lips long into the evening
she couldn’t hide them from their eyes
nor her satisfied grin.

Their arms they outstretch and offer
a cradle
to shelter her
they say
“we have vanilla and chocolate
it may not be what tickles your fancy
but it will never sting your throat.”

She thinks that
chocolate and vanilla
were just dandy
when she was a little girl

but her palate has refined

as her hips have widened

and her appetite has grown

for all these earthly delights.

and now all she wants is to stand
as close to the fire as possible
dance near the flames
like a banshee
and if she burns
she bites
she does so with delight.

So she asks them, curious –
“What if I found the perfect sweet?
Pretty.
Unique.
Exotic.
Something like watermelon with chilli.
Blackberries with basil,
Pumpkin and pineapple.
And it doesn’t hurt.
Doesn’t make me sick to the stomach
when I take the last bite.”

Honestly that’s what she really wants.
She wonders if it’s possible.

To have sugar and spice
and all things
naughty
and nice.

Sugar and spice and all things nice
