Flash Sale

Like a grounded bolt of lightning
she cut a resolved path to the nearest door,
shattering her personal best
in her hundred meter, neighborhood dash.
The temptation was beyond any
womanhood resistance.
Our corner candy store had a
"buy one, get two free sale"
on large chocolate bars.
Large, Dark .... chocolate bars.
Not even Mercury himself
could have beaten her
through that closing door's opening.
Successful with her purchase,
she just sat ....
drooling brown, sticky smiles.

Author's Notes:
Dedicated to my wife:
My wife loves Dark Chocolate ... anything
