Ginger (2014)

I missed the bus with you
Over three years, crossing the road with you, for something
Unseen, dark, new.

Until today
I thought your orange hair
Was honest hair, rebellious hair,
Hair that withstood critics and bewildered those
Detractors of the Rainbow. I find

Your hair does not have fiery roots and
Your hair
Is a liar.
