Under Construction

The young woman
(Ignoring the blue sky and passing greenery,
The misty vistas of an early Saturday morning)
Proceeds to transform her face
With a variety of Lily Lo products -
Brushes, powders, lotions.

After thirty minutes
Her spotty, pale face has given way
To unnatural pink
She paints on a scowl
Beneath the table I notice
Her heavy brown boots

Yes, nice to see some movement here. It's been a bit quiet over the Summer. You should have quite a stack of peoms to show us by now!
If not some peoms then maybe a few pomes?
