I sometimes gaze longingly at cosmetic bottles in shops.
One of them just might contain the perfect elixir
that will fix my age or skin or hair.
The prettier the bottle, the more promise it holds.
While certain natural lotions & potions help me to take care of my physical self,
I'm allergic to most chemical scents & products...
Yet, & yet, I still sometimes gaze longingly...
Remember Ponce de Léon?
