Disulfide bonds dissolve as black curls fade into grey waves
Orphan Annie ringlets replaced by the mess in between
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
