Pendulum hips

And Godiva

Stacked thighs

Swayed eyes

Side to side

As her chocolate

Tick switch

Of rhythm and wine,

Made time.

    I absolutely love this character. I think we all know a person who just owns every space they are in. Brilliantly crafted.

    You’ve created an interesting character, Shawn. Her sanguine nature has more to it. Looking forward to the revision.

    Mertle sounds like some people I used to know. I have not figured out where they faded to.
