The extinction of curls

Disulfide bonds dissolve as black curls fade into grey waves

Orphan Annie ringlets replaced by the mess in between

Curl, dammit!

Give me one slinky curl, one steely ringlet!

The spunk is no longer tangible, the bounce utterly flattened

Crazy hair lady

Crazy hair, not crazy lady

Sticky goop lingers as does the frizz

Hair frayed and frazzled by life’s uncertainties

Kinks caught at strained angles, hot naked wires

Rudimentary bonds broken by lies of permanence

Curls are delicate, endangered beings

None of this in-between crap!

Save them forever


Seal them into a layer of petrified graves
