Lips of fire - The crown of my body

Written by: Vicky Tsiluma

                 A small boy
              stared at my lips
               And ran miles
              screaming loudly
                 to his mom.
              He pointed out,
    ‘Look mom, she has lips of fire!’

                 I then turned.
            The woman laughed
               when she saw
               my red lipstick
                 sizzling hot.
             And that sums me –
         …I'm miss-interpreted...
