i painted my nails a light blue color
wishing i had a more accurate shade of periwinkle
the polish globbed on
my mother has hers painted a redish brown
the paint is chipped
count them 5,5 vibrant color
count hers 2, 4 dull and scary
i bought 4 stickers for 18 dollars
she sent a 50 gallon tub of shirts, shoes and books to charity
one of us has a designer bag at home
the other one has a goodwill one
kate spade wallet and polaroid camara
is no match for an android lens and nobrand purse
Love this! “a more accurate shade of periwinkle” – how marvelously precise!
Loving the details in this and your use of structure.
Strong subtext game!
Each stanza is vivid. The couplets give us so much (nice device for comparisons), and the first pulls you in while the last has a punch familiar to many a mother and daughter.
