Girls Like Us

Brilliant. Bright,
tough and beautiful--
like walking, talking
Ready for both:
rough and smooth.

Red wine confessions
shots of honesty
TRUTH: fierce and delicate
shaken, not stirred
in a martini glass.
Growing younger with each
girlish giggle.

Kitten-heeled warriors
coffee and curiosity.
Artful science
traipses toward tomorrow
with pretty pink toenails



Inspired by Coppola Chardonnay

good wine in
a plastic bucket
soaking in
machine made ice
an obvious injustice

blackberry cravings
wireless memories
two ugly lamps shine on
princesses in a
cheap hotel room

Though the above poem was written while drinking Coppola Chardonnay (which I adore), I must tell you all that my new favorite is Ghost Pines Chardonnay (photo below). It's the perfect balance of fruit and oak. I highly recommend it.
