Vanity’s Night Out

Immaculately groomed, with not a hair out of place,
You both slowly entered the candlelit restaurant.

Your feathers opened in a dazzling flourish
Of exquisite designer brand accessories.
Peripherally aware of us all and yet,
Calling out to be the centre of attention
You formed a tailored line of elegance.
With manufactured self-composure
You both strutted past…

You sat down gracefully
Ate delicately, yet ravenously.
Vanity’s hunger momentarily fed.
