Hair Apparent (NaPoWriMo day 9)


Never picture perfect
Tousled and uneven
Corkscrewed and curlicued
Shaggy or shorn

Painted purple
Or blatantly blonde
Tamed and twisted
Or let lioness loose

Tenuous tugs through the tangles
The texture is pleasure personified
The sheer weight of it commands attention
Presence. Power.

My crown is truly my glory
My light. My beauty.
My story.
Told in a multitude of ways and waves

The image is indelible

my thick, unruly, coarse mane

magnificent entity unto itself

unabashedly present
