The Woman

He wrote –
about her red lips,
some verses on her smoky eyes,
and fell in love with her hair.

She –
always bought the best makeup!


"There she was! 
Red lipstick 
Eyes lined with the smoky blues 
And deep grays of the night 
Hair, a burnished bronze. 
Art, they say, is a woman's face!"
