Untamed

My mane is a primitive vine –

A blind communique –

I’m too lazy to make it shine –

with pomades or hairspray –

 

 

Tie it with an elastic band?

Or tame it with some heat?

Some say pin them down – every strand!

But that looks way too neat –

 

 

I shall remain a loose bun lass.

I even favor plaits –

to styles of some imagined class.

For vines don’t fit a vase.
