Inspired by: "The Shining" by Stephen King


Run your fingers down the fonts until you find the item that you want
your wallet is full of presidents so price is not a factor in your choice
take a drink of water then watch the glass fill up again
questioning the menu even though you know it comes with

A side of shining
perfect compliment to almost any entrée
Side of shining
senses percolate
there is no substituting
side of shining

engage in pleasant conversation with the woman sitting opposite
by the way she’s smiling you know for sure the lady is impressed
champagne is flowing freely
raise your glass propose a toast
to the things you love the most
to the night that’s going flawlessly

Into her eyes you stare
she’s playing with her hair
you put her hand on your leg and she just leaves it there
your starting to feel the shine
you know what’s on her mind
its time to seal the deal
she’ll soon be riding your snowmobile
