How Does This Look?

J. Scott Smith

"How does this look?"

With the question
came a decision.

To reply as the question was asked
and state how "this" looks?

Or to reply as the question was intended
and state how "this" looks "on her"?

Know the road I took?

I sensed real danger
and made provision.

"Wow, that's very pretty," I said.
And then, having set my hooks,

"But on you, it's simply beautiful!"
And in that instant knew, she was a goner.

"How does this look?"

Umm, yeah...
