Beautiful Broads

January 7th, 2012

I’d love to be reborn as a lush full-blown amaryllis, bursting into the world with a personality as big as a shiny new 18-wheeler. Ready for days soaking up the sun and nights making love with the moon. With a mouth made for kissing and kissing again, I wouldn’t know the meaning of guilt, shame or regret. I’d never hold back, instead throwing myself into being with all the red in my veins, betting everything I owned on one explosive entrance — wearing my best dress, quivering with green and gold perfumed sap, batting my┬ápollen tipped lashes. A beautiful broad who was born to bloom.
