Pear-Mango Passion Shampoo

I turn the silver handle towards red
But my shower water's
Losing it's grip on warmth
So turning up the heat
Results only
In a steady temperature.

I know I
Poured too much shampoo.
It smelled so damn good
I couldn't stop myself.

I haven't had a pear in years
I've never tasted a mango.

I've forgotten what
I was going to wash next.
