Pink Heels

A coat of red paint covers her lips,
a small black dress magnifies her curves;
a pair of pink heels makes her more woman.

Shoes are for girls; heels personify status. Coupled with
a walkway-like strut into any club, she can seize
the lust of any man who she cares to indulge for the night.

In the AM, she awakens to memories in knots:
smeared Chanel  lip gloss, a torn black dress,
pink heels tossed to the bedside.

Her pink heels lay, a witness to the night,
separate, together, complete.
