This Isn’t About Trains or Armadillos
That starched ribbon in her hair,
its of dubious use. Absurd to think
it can tie smoke, or restrain hair
that’s the colour of Moroccan wind.
And she leans over the jukebox,
f-me boots up to her anymores.
She’s a superstar Wurlitzer genius,
a mix of nightbird, and tar soap.
This society girl is doing a Kerouac.
Her strappy sandals, left for nature
to interfere, left in the winter rain,
and washed clean. Useless! useless!
