for you. Pink champagne in long
stemmed glasses, slice of watermelon. 
Passion-fruit juice. Sheer lingerie. 
Flamingos in a zoo, dizzy girls
with iced eye shadow. Wear it, sink
into blankets. Hot pink you say,
your favorite. Glossed lips, face glows
when you're near. Yes, a cake with candles. 

In the pink. Loud hibiscus blooms
in this room—flattering fuchsia, bold type. 
More than a hint. Take it, open 
note—high-lighted in sudden flair.
A fizgig's float. This ship glides, sails out
of line with transparent overtones.
