g boutique

Shopping for lingerie surrounded
By black lace and pink camisoles,

I secretly wonder about my fellow
Customers. Are those girls planning

A bridal shower or primping for their
Boyfriends? What about the woman

Lingering over the body oils? And,
As if in a movie, a man rushes in

To buy a bustier for his girlfriend
But doesn’t know her size and the

Shopgirl tries to help him but her
Suggestions only result in more

Distress. Oh, what a confusing world
For men – Bikinis, shorts or thongs –

Bra sizes like strange codes
(B38: you sank my battleship) –

And endless shades of lavender.
A woman pays for the cab and

He is overcome with thanks
For the sexual revolution.
