The Little Black Dress
Is best served with red wine
To accompany the red soles
Of the pumps below it
As she moves through the bistro.

The Little Black Dress
Rarely does not flatter the wearer
Giving its all
To show off the legs
Encased in black tights in the cold
Or bare in the thick humidity
Of the summer.

The Little Black Dress
Can be served
As part of a healthy breakfast
Or as lunch, but especially as dinner.

But if served as dessert,
Champagne must accompany
The Little Black Dress
Glasses clinking
As it hits the floor.
