What Does He Want In Return?

He bought me the fur thing…
Five winters ago.
And the gown the following fall.
Then the necklace, the bag, the shoes and the hat.
That was late ’48. I recalllllllllllllllllll.
Then last night in his apartment.
He tried to remove them alllllllllllllllllll!

And I said, as I ran down the halllllllllllllllllll.

Take back your mink.
Take back your pearls.
What made you think…that I was one of those girls??? I’m screaming!

Take back the gown.
The shoes and the hat.
I may be down, but I’m not flat as all that.
