Ruby red lips

Sun spun hair

Green eyes




Lights aglow

Flashing of purple,

Magenta and gold


Slip into

Black velvet

Sequined gown


Loose change

Folded bills



Heels of coal

Mind on fire



Another chip added

Cards flipping

Dice rolling


Heart pounding

Lost in a shuffle

Dazed and blinded


Eyes; olive drab

Hair of wheat

Rosy lips, pale
