next to my hair salon of choice,

there was an amazing jewelry store.

Before an appointment,

I’d peruse the sparkling wares,

and occasionally I’d be captivated,

to leave a great percentage

of my pay cheque there,

in exchange for lasting, glistening baubles.


next to my hair salon of choice,

these is an amazing chocolate store.

Before an appointment,

I peruse the creamy, sweet wares,

and always I am captivated,

to leave a small percentage

of my pay cheque there,

in exchange for momentary ecstasy on my tongue.
