Nicole's Poppy

Leather, amber, tonka and musk:
She wears her blond hair like a cape
and does not care what you think.
For this you dress up like her, want to be her.

A little princess in heels looks out at her public
and delights with the secret:
We are all royalty, just some of us never forgot.
In this way, she has something to teach us.

Namely, forget this boring insecurity dogging you your whole life.
Shout the word that names you, warrior or poet, from the rooftop.
Now is the time to behave in kind, royalty from the start.
Copy those who do this instinctively until you remember who you are.
