Petticoats

17 Nov

While she was out,

we would play with

our big sister’s billowing

petticoats;

shocking pink and lime green

layers of net,

like gaudy Cinderellas

waiting for a prince.

She would return

to our innocent smiles,

and that night,

with her high heeled shoes,

our petticoats

would Rock and Roll

at The Locarno

Ball
