Tomorrow Would Be Too Late [REVISED 2]


A wonderful Sunday, two purple lipsticks and purple glasses
bought to go with the purple bag; for my work place coloured
dishcloths & a new trilby - like Rex Harrison wore in the
guise of Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady, waiting are

Imitation tattoos for Nici and I to be applied around the eye,
she will have to help me; a hand-held fan in silver and white
for the heat in the office - I lay on the porch’s cool marble
earlier today enjoying birdsong, wInd in the trees

Swimming in a glass dome the sun gilding fir trees; can’t wait
for tomorrow’s new purple glasses effect; must remember to
take vegetables & ice-cream to the office for nourishing
meals; wonderful cabbage and carrots this week-end

My beloved with a lopsided smile telling us of the Alfa he
would like to buy; tonight we must apply our tattoos as
tomorrow morning would be too late…
