Seventeen shades of cream
Congregated on her perfect form
Her peplum sashaying left and right alike
The metronome…her Louboutins

Stepping out

Apparel that costs the earth…

Pray tell me
High Street Princess
Whisper to Me
What is it you seek…

And I can swear…
Amidst the roars of the low slung coupes
In between the fluid swipes of credit cards

I hear the…
Unequivocal
Unsophisticated
Unabashed
Admission

An admission with words like…
Home and Pyjamas and Slippers
Strung together in a not altogether incoherent phrase…

Whatever could she have meant…
That perfect High Street Girl

A budding poet and writer

Impassioned authentic poetry that catches me quite by surprise when I find inspiration in the strangest of places..

I have a Facebook page titled
