She ( beguiled, hypnotized , enchanted)

dreams in shades of pink ,

pale peony pink ,

flamingo pink,

the color of vintage tea towels,

scented with ginger .

She peeps through absurd keyholes

tempted by promises of clarity

and instead of earnestness

finds astonishment,

(goblins of otherness,)

afloat in iridescence,

a milky way of

unfinished desire.

She wears those stars around

her neck, a cosmic pendant falling

close to her heart.

It twinkles with words like fearless,



She fumbles

with the clasp.
