Random Poem:


it’s been a long day;
i can finally undress,
step in gracefully, pull…
and now,
slowly, ribbons of luxurious velvet
spill out overhead,
and sheet the bathtub.
it’s filled with plush,
irresistible luxury, and
i snuggle in.
as i lay,
he approaches,
wrapped in his velvet robe.
he hands them to me, and whispers
one simple question.
i smile and reply,
honey mustard.
i lay dipping the French fries into
the richest of condiments:
the royal experience.
