White Stripe

In a moment of hesitation
we lay down and the kudzu grew over us.
I should have stopped sooner/short of the edge
smack up to the fiddlehead ferns and beckoning tentacles,
I mean...tendrils...

I should have a white streak in my hair
like JoBeth Williams had in Poltergeist.
She said she liked it, for she had earned it.
But I won't get one; it is all so middle-of-the road, and
the kudzu has me by the wrists and ankles.

This darn green stuff is so pretty.
I can see why they didn't think carefully before planting.

  1. Tara, you incorrigible! This is great, and gives one so many ideas.

  2. Nicely done! Many more white stripes come to mind...
