A Plastic Love

with one comment

He said he loved herTupperware boxes
but she knew
it was a  love
fresh only for a few
seconds
as long as his sentence.
Then stored away.

So much safer
in a plastic container.

(Thick rimmed plastic the colour of cream
resilient and efficient for a Tupperware Queen)

And he was self-sufficient
that she admired
but somehow
it  seemed to require
a distance
lack of  substance
a bland proposition
she could not stand!

How bored she was with this lack of demand
How his caress made her flesh
C R A W L
turn away
Dream of another lover
stored safely
for another day.

(Thick rimmed plastic the colour of cream
resilient and efficient for a Tupperware Queen)
