Sassy
sun ready
she’d read
on the can

Virtually
guaranteed
to get
her a man

Summer
Hot nightclubs
or cruising
the beach

Sassy
sun ready
aiming for
Isis

Reading
instructions
doing it
right

Sprayed
and waited
in time
it’d come

Sassy
sun ready
filing
her nails

Sassy
sun ready
flicking
magazines

Until
clocks strike
time for
the reveal

Sassy
sun ready
aghast in
the mirror

Despairs
Screaming

“THAT’S
THE
ORANGEST
FAKE-TAN
I’VE EVER
SEEN”

[From Dan’s prompt: ‘Orangest’]
