(she has)

November 18, 2010

cut short
pulled tight
held back
and tied
with fraying ribbons

(she feels)
colored
curled and twisted
loosely reigned
blown straight
by electricity and air

(she will)
spray on control
spend too much time
putting pieces into place

(she knows)
that wind and humidity
arrange things as they will
