Fat Teeth

You shone
my black dressed diamond;
horoscope on golden chain,
bunny collar and headband
virgin white but both fake;

Corset, skirt and
flesh coloured stockings,
no shoes you said
“They were too tight”,
beguiled by your fat teeth*
I regret it was all too short
A night.

After a great night out on the eve of my birthday. The words “fat teeth” are not actually what I was looking for but they were suggested to me in conversation. Replace them with “smile” for added sentimentality.
