Aspiring to Elegance – Promote Yourself

High heels –
But lower now

Kitten heels –
Great Aunt heels
More like

Hair –
Never looked so young
Was blonde at five
Now 50
And blonde again –
T-section at least

Clothes –
First time I can really buy
What I like
And what I like
Is in Charity shops
The Gently worn
The Pre-loved
The Hoped would be right
Or the bought in excess

A nameless 19 year old
Looked shocked
“It might be all right
for you…”
she said
-old woman

Actually young lady
I look good!

And hold my own

Except when I wobble
On the mules
Or miss my footing…

Heel in the grid
Sole flapping…

Oh what the heck
Shoe off and hopping

Limp lightly
Find  tape
Breathless with laughter
Clinging on to a friend
Shaking her head
Enjoying the carefree

Which when I was carefree

I didn’t

Late Summer
Early Autumn
So good!
