The writing prompt for this week is to write a song about clothing. So, as I usually do, I thought I’d start with a poem.

MY RED DRESS

Candle Apple red shoes I craved when eight
Black and white saddle shoes for ankle strength
Cathy and I sold yearbook ads both wearing a red dress
Why guy yelled “Where’s the festival?” we could only guess

Pink was the color for baby doll PJs and canopy beds
Red was my color and why I wrote “Real Women Wear Red”
Sandy and Cyn and Millie were women of three
Wearing red on a cruise ship in the islands of the Caribbean

Bikinis and pedis and cocktails for sure
Flip flops and shorts and stilettos with formal wear
Vlogging and social media may be ruling the world
But a woman in pink is still just a girl
