A beautiful Verse on Red Lipstick worth sharing:

Montezuma Red (Pardalote Press)

Classic lipstick by Elizabeth Arden

Except for ‘i’ all vowels are present,
compressed into a promise – Montezuma.
Lipstick in hand, I scrawl a message on the mirror,
watch red double back meaning & intent.
Dream, glamour, allure – the antithesis of dull.
Aware of the stain’s slow fade, the re-entry to shadow,
I renew the flare, the soft gash signaling
this way, not that, then follow my reflected flash.
Snow dusts my clothes. Reckless, I blot my lips against
a chilled windowpane. Step away ready to be looked at…

Elizabeth Arden:  During World War II, Arden recognized the changing needs of the American woman entering the work force. She showed women how to apply makeup and dress appropriately for careers outside the home. She created a lipstick called Montezuma Red, for the women in the armed forces that would match the red on their uniforms. – en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_Arden
