In Third Place . . .

Vivachange 77

New upholstery
Covers multitude of flaws
Hides unpleasant truths.

In Second Place . . .

Patience

Her white thighs
stuck to the black upholstery
that had been baking
under Florida’s sun,
and she scrunched up her nose
at the sudden shock of it.

but she was hotter,
and he couldn’t take
his eyes away.

And our winner is . . .

Congratulations, and don’t forget your nifty badge!
