Up to the minute, the day, the hour
An imposter chasing her superpower
The hero out to checkmate her prey
But zero genuine wishes to obey

As frozen cauliflower awaits the defroster
The trends and oatmeal cleanses have lost her
Dishes piled up to a figure eight
Its achilles’ heel: that oversized plate

The spiel is that she’s more than a Mrs.
But the finish line some nights still feels repetitious
Like watching the peel of an apple decay
When sunshine on the gate says “come out to play”

First bite is the embrace of a favorite blanket
How a meteor shower might taste if you drank it
A thought to her waistline would mean “no quiero”
So she’ll replace it with dreams of Rio de Janeiro

No friends of luxury will fail to divert
If the lens catches sight of a frozen dessert
She’ll foster ambition and willpower tomorrow
The moments tonight are all hers to borrow
