An ordinary housewife

My head turns tube
Fingers soaking in a touch of Eastern Promise
A girl working her face into a creamy lather
Looks up with eyes that melt in your mouth
She smiles a bright, bright smile
That gets her noticed
Her face is clean, Sunlight clean
And digest the dirt and stains
ordinary faces leave behind
Her arms that cross her heart
are covered in thick milk chocolate
Made to make your eyes water
Suddenly an explosion bursts from her lips
“I use brand "X""! she cries
Tears transforming into a washing machine
Gurgling soaps suds, and that’s when I discovered
She was just an Ordinary Housewife
