Fortune’s Fashion Statement

by Caddo

Wife’s fortune cookie
Predicts she’ll make a name in
The field of fashion.
She strikes a chic, fetching pose–
I muffle laugh with coughing.

Wife’s annoyed with my
Mocking lack of “fortune faith”.
I smile to appease.
Snort–when she quips, “Armani?”
Point out she wears chow mein “bling”.

Hand her my fortune:
You’ll make a change for better–
“Want to trade me in?”
She chortles, kisses me, vows
“Not for mere red carpet fame!”
