Cucumber Pickle

She was a miniature mustard-seed cucumber pickle
She was a Swiss-choco eatery never a foodie

She was horribly modular and screamed for her way
She was sexually wayward on any fucking given day

She found ways to escape in an intrepid puff of vape
She was every shade of grey, colour-bled opaquely OCD

She had rules of engagement, a nazi-encamp
She burnt fires in the tent he extinguished, time-after-time

She revealed the sham in her all-naked "Victim" 
A one woman play performed open-air to trick him

Into giving everything away

She was vitally triple seven a fully committed delight
Insanely institutional in all degrees of wile

She's becoming deceit in receipt
Dazzlingly in the realm of bling
Perfectly imperfect unbelievably fake
Quasi Italian to the uninitiated what game!

    That's great! (I run across that "Watermelon Pickle" book every time I go to a used bookstore so I totally got the reference!)
