#poems: Nicole Inquires About Scarves


You came to me after the set asking me about


If I have any scarves to sell,

When you can purchase scarves.

You noticed I was working on scarves and was dismayed that I

Didn’t have


To sell tonight.

Only a couple of hats that were already claimed

And a mangled pink scarf not even half complete.

You took note,

How nicely the amaretto sweet sat against your hot chocolate skin.

Your eyes searching me for weakness.

You asked how long are my


“it depends on my customer, what their needs may be”

I take the


From around my neck and show,

“For me they can be short, but others like it long”

You smile.

I get the feeling Nicole,

This was never about scarves.
