Cinquains – Salon & Spa

A hint

of witch hazel

to reduce the swelling

from an allergic reaction

it soothes

Mud mask

for acneic skin

refines and reduces

breakouts now under control

clears up

Sugar

wax like honey

or azulene instead

old fashioned yet effectively

waxed off

opening up the eyes

brightens the features of the face

spa time for sprucing up

dolled up from head to toes to

Calloused

feet and tired

from standing still so long

or walking west to east, no rest

relaxed

*

the pair

of you reflect

a mirrored imagery

indicating you’re more than just

two thumbs

French tips

trendy art form

perfected with polish

a steady and skillful hand makes

French tips

Excess

superfluous

growing out of control

coming at me from all angles

hair growth

Superfluous-Hair-Growth

Intent

to epilate

and to eradicate

this undesirable case of

hair growth
