coils.

they spring,

and sing,

and blush.


with kisses of water,

and oils that cascade into places

often neglected.


so you brush.

with a tug of war grip.

strand by strand.

with shea butter hands.


it’s not “just hair”.

it is soft, yet stubborn,

much like myself.


some days,

having a mind of its own.

growing.

slow as honey drips.


other days,

much faster.


i realize,

i, too.

am a garden,

with dandelion kinks,

and curls in between.


waiting to be watered,

waiting to be seen.
