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 ecstatic, 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 orgiastic consumption, 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 anyone.
