shelly a reed


feeling ignored?
need relief from chapped hands?
try my hips on for size.
reusable, inflatable woman seeks mark rothko-type.
must tolerate occasional role play;
no handcuffs, will consider silk ribbons.
guaranteed to give your hands an orgasm
and make your mother jealous.
not for the timid of heart
nor the stapled of stomach.
final poem holds a gene pool of prose
and the secret twenty-seventh
letter in the alphabet soup.
