read my mind

What to wear on your first flight?
Maybe something sheer and light--


From her rooftop patio,
At first she thought, take it slow


He could see her underpants;
She agreed to take a chance--


Leaping off, not looking down,
In that flyaway gauzy gown
--

He instructed, hold my hand
I'll catch you before you land.


Trusting him, she closed her eyes--
She knew she deserved his prize.
 

Superman, said the sassy girl,
My eyes reflect your whole world.
 


She said, if you need a friend
I'm the place your journey ends--
 


I am here, I'll be your friend--
           When you need love, here I am.



Ella asked the Real Toads to write a poem inspired by this quote from Coco Chanel: "Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." Fashion is in the sky? Well, obviously!
