    the box said clairol
    it came with a cap
    thinking about gold
    and the ocean
    tight curls cut close to my head
    you said
    let's do this girl

    i looked in the mirror
    the color was yellow and brassy
    something out of Crayola
    not sun kissed or sexy

    my fifteen minutes as a blonde
    lasted long enough for you to run to the store
    as jokes about being a $2 whore
    and return to hunts point
    reverberated off of the kitchen walls with laughter

    15 minutes was long enough!

    i relive this poem everytime i go to the HOT! HOT! SOUTH in august!! having a father that was darker than tar...and me his offspring, being blacker than a grand canyon full of midnights...it didn't behoove us to be born with dark reddish hair that became more prominently red as we spent time in the sun!!! i became so tired of people asking me upon my return home...why i felt the need to DYE MY HAIR THAT COLOR!! finally i started telling them that i purchased stock in REVLON and that i needed to make sure that my dividend checks arrived at a continuously consistent amount!!! i laughed then...i'm laughing even more now!! great piece!!!!! thanx for allowing me to read and reflect!!
