Vintage Heart

These modern day girls,
they don't fall in love
like they did in the black and white movies,
no more Audrey Hepburns' sipping on chardonnays
and pursing gold flake cigarettes
over a bowl of delicate conversation

they're unsophisticated,
they puff on cigars
and gulp down jello shots
while attempting a balletic demeanor
as poetic as Grace Kelly

but their actual depiction
is gauche
and lacking the ability
to fool any heart,
especially Cary Grant's

    LOL! I so enjoyed this. Raw and honest and actually quite humorous. Not to mention TRUE! Well done! Love, Shar
