A Question About Women

What is it about women
and fruity lip gloss,
you ask me.

She probably thinks
you like strawberries,
I say, to myself.

To you I offer as an explanation,
my preference for glitter
to sidestep the matter of fruit

and cover up—neatly, I think—
my incomprehension at the questions
that sometime lovers choose to ask.

Was taken back to college days, days of strawberry and pineapple gloss. What was that, I wonder??
