Blind Date


Grabs jingling car keys
and the thought of ‘what if’.
Foot to pedal;
the other raised,
checks ‘Hotty Pink’ polish.
Confidence booster.
Toes wiggle.

60 minutes pending
CD player in gear,
fires up sultry musings
of expectant notions.
Wonders if
full disclosure
was disclosed.
Perhaps, misrepresentation
will be the flavor of the day.

Examines hair in rearview.
Yes, humidity did
its only redeeming job.
Curls still spiral;
no frizz though.
Sigh of relief.
This exhale most welcome.

30 minutes and counting
One-handed steering,
while other frantically searches;
traces Braille in cluttered purse.
Reads lipstick tube.
Fingers squint and see ‘Paprika’;
right on target.
Digging done for now.

Lips pucker-up.
Spicy creme glides
over bowtie mouth.
Another glance in the rearview.
Glossy stain achieved;
stayed within the lines.
Smile, bright eyes.

10 to go
Spritzes scent
on translucent neck hollow;
milky-white pillowed cleft;
delicate wrists;
Appropriately sweet,
not cloying.

Locates time piece by piece;
discovers second hand
is an ally.
Smoothes skirt
with trembling hands.
One final fluff
of waved shine.
Last mirror check;
passes judgment,
I guess.

Deep breaths.
Still wonders
about the unknown;
or is that, wanders into?
Recites the mantra
"I am worthy".
Repeat after me.
No expectations.
Yeah, right.

Blast off
