Sweet Little Nothings

When life isn't going right go left chocolate

Her life was lived in patterns—
houndstooth in the fall,
plaid in the winter,
floral in the spring,
& paisley in the summer.
She’d looked like everything
from curtains to tablecloths,
from bedspreads to wallpaper,
but when her friend sent her a little red dress—
she realized that she no longer blended in
but stood out,
for the rest of the world was all mixed up
in 50 shades of grey.
