How to Win That Man

perfectionism: the fragrance.
be an ideal vial
of toilet water.
discover little dainties 
in pock-marked
hand-held
facades.
purge your persona 
with the devil’s 
details.

flippancy: the fashion.
be a toothpick-skewered
single-serving 
euphemism.
be sampled
and rimmed about on gossip’s lips.
paw 
for the choicest brown
velvet 
neck-caressing
reassurance.

double-standard: the sexiness.
be a pretty ogre
pitchfork hordes
fashioned 
at a wink.
tactless
hunch-back
spasms in each spoon
of toil.
carve wide moats 
of saccharine 
bitterness.
