                                                First Woman-Dress


                                                I dream of going back

                                                to virgin white        of

                                                starting all over   I see me

                                                in my fine First Woman-

                                                Dress, beads & yoke of

                                                firestone blue, double-cut

                                                fringe swaying to the ground,

                                                the part of my hai vermilioned.

                                                I can see the years spinning

                                                down into happiness &

                                                something lost that should

                                                have been. I can see me

                                                strutting proud, black-haired

                                                wild-eyed boys lined up knee

                                                deep. struck

                                                too damn dumb to speak, all

                                                holding breaths waiting to see

                                                who will be The One. I can

                                                see me laughing   laughing,

                                                torturing them all with

                                                thoughts of this empty blanket



                                                that no one shares.

Awwwww. I loved working in alabama for boeing military.
Love the chipper bio pic...
Funny my duvet no one shares either, must be the Alabama curse.
