Sweet Little Nothings

You got this chocolate

When Kitty Carlisle joined Toastmasters—
she, who’d always considered herself
the Toast of Town & Country—
fell in lust with Mr. Milquetoast,
who buttered her up
with a little brandied mincemeat jam,
so that she was drunk when she said,
“I do.”
When she became Toastmaster General,
he was known as Mr. Kitty Carlisle,
& she,
the cool cat who’d settled for
toaster leavins’ & spoilt milk.
