Delicious Carmel Italian leather sandals
Showing off my newly tan legs with
Vermillion painted toes, reminding me
Age no longer matters.
My mother used to say
“…class can’t be bought or taught.”
Then she was Romanian,
Where gypsies were mysterious and a little naughty
Loving tall dark men that wore fedoras.
Special women’s traits, those
Female traits are your birthright
To carry with you on your shoulder
In Brahmin toasted almond Portuguese leather.
To spray lemon ginger Origins on your wrists and
Behind your ears, and other places unmentioned
Knowing no matter your biological time here…
Beauty, also, cannot be bought or taught.
