Inbox (O.S.I.)

Hi all,

I am writing a poem for O.S.I and this week's theme is inbox.

Pamper yourself ~ 75% off all luxury items
Contour beauty ~ 60% off cosmetics
Reveal your sultry goddess ~ 50% off all goods

Her eyes fell into the void
Of offers from an inbox
Promising her happiness
Delete key at her fingertips
Smoothing her long black hair
Her mother’s ribbon smelled of orchards
The only thing she needed to feel beautiful
