Hair

Untangle my knotted fairy tale
and run your fingers through
its platinum shades.
Let them flow
down
the
back
of
a
chair,
a downpour of hair
spun like silk,
an impossible
waterfall of follicles.

    – what a brilliant idea – and it’s the word “impossible” that totally clinches this well worded and crafted poem – gorgeous ending Kim!
