when the secret gets out

she found the best pair of shoes,
she found the best pair of kicks,
she found a shirt that matched the both of
em’ &
she was just 
to say the least---
but somewhere along the way,
before she even wore the combo,
before she got to leave the house,
before she got to 
live that new day 
sparkling on the inside as the 
madam of all 
the secret got out.

she couldn’t place her finger on it,
just what “friend” found out & then
spread the rumor,
but now every woman she knows,
has a sense of where she got her deals &
more importantly, if they chose to,
now every woman that she knows
can get clothing at those places & now,
this american consuming beauty
needs to go back to the drawing board,
armed with her plastic &
the anger welling up within
from having ever trusted
