Lipstick red
Unsheathed to don her costume
Sealing in moisture and unkind comments
A scarlet speakerbox instead
Siren calls for pale, limp boys
A scarlet door
or a stop sign

All that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream....
Edgar Allen Poe

The following comments are for "Lipstick Red"
by poesandpoetry

Anyone who reads my many comments (and, let's face it: my comments are good times indeed. ahem) knows that I adore suggestion, stories implied rather than told. And this little gem is chock full of implied tales, divergent paths, multiple explanations.

tres bien!

Lipstick Read
Unerringly smooth. "sealing in...unkind comments" -- how slick and cool is that. The first 13 words are, indeed, poetry. Excellent, just excellent.

"Lipstick Signs"
Pnp: Stunned. Exceptional piece. Don't "stop."

Viper, Brad, Bobby, thanks for your comments. Maybe less is more. Hmm.
