Lush Catalogue Found Poem
Lots of women
would like to believe
they were Cleopatra,
hosting a party
without the hangover.
Indulgence with no guilt
helps you escape from
exotic citrus and patchouli.
Lemon and rose
calms fears and soothes nerves,
makes your honeymoon last forever.
Got the weight of the world on your shoulders?
A French kiss is the perfect kiss goodnight.
It’s not like us to worry.
For days that are dark and gloomy,
karma could be just right for you.
Sometimes to stay truly timeless
we older ones discontinue.
Some people can go an entire lifetime
looking for someone to join
their bathtime gang.
It’s hard to be a hippy
if you can’t go for a daily tramp in the woods.
You’d rather be playing the tambourine
in 1960s Haight-Ashbury.
Nobody buys it for the box alone,
although we do make the occasional mistake.
