Have you Ever ?

Tickled the cat on the belly
Gone knickerless to work
Read a whole magazine on the shop stand
Skipped lunch and gone straight for dessert?

Worn high heels washing the dishes
Leant over a fence for a rose
Danced naked in a rainstorm
Painted hot chilli red on your toes?

Taped ‘kiss me’ on your friends back
Made your own bubbles in the bath
Sung Madame Butterfly in the shower
Ordered a fake fur rug hearth?

Gone skinny dipping at midnight
Learnt a little burlesque
Tried painting a self portrait blind folded
Enjoyed a chic flic with girlfriend and Kleenex?

Guzzled Perrier watching the sunset
Dipped strawberries in chocolate and munched
Handed out smiley face cards on street corners
Acted on an impromptu hunch?

Have you ever tried tango
Or dyed your hair burgundy red
Sniffed at the musky scent of lilies
Bought silk sheets for the bed?

A little bit of naughty goes a long way
To reviving a neglected heart
Your spirit will sing in your heart space
It’s never too late to start

Have you Ever?…

Artist's Description

I was inspired by Laura Broussard’s poem Being Good, is Boring and since I have the hardest time ever being good I was inspired to write a little something myself…xxx

For Pink Panther magazine:
I believe that women the world over lose themselves in the giving that they do for others…in order to be a truly empowered woman one needs to take care of ones own spirit and ones own heart…what is being good after all, but pleasing others? when it leaves us feeling dissatisfied, our spirit is calling out for nurture…to me this is a basic feminist premise, equality for all…oneself included…
