I Don't Like Tab
There's a reason why saccharine
has a negative connotation, and I'm
not talking about that whole "cancer
in rats" thing. It's the taste of Palm Springs,
of peach wedges floating on cottage cheese
on a slice of lettuce. It's the scent of
perfumes like Shalimar and An Evening in Paris.
That bright pink, like a Danielle Steel cover.
There's just so much there that
Turns my stomach.
