She's peppermint pink
like seaside rock
a hot sugar boiler
as sickly sweet 
as fast junk food 
as thick white icing
on the Christmas cake

arm candy, eye candy
beauty in confection
her heroin looks 
hook all you
sucrose addicts
acid droppers
horse dopers

chic carved cheeks 
chopped blonde locks
a glutton for your glances
honeyed looks from strangers
and those she bestows
when the appeal
of candied peel
wears thin
as sugar-coating

peppermint pink 
like seaside rock
her name remains
right down
to the last
