Amplifier: Linking poet and audience


Brought to you by


Litany for a Woman's Hair

Luther reformed catholic thought
with ninety-five theses, yet
nailed one worldly observation
that a woman should wear
her finest ornament
falling free down her back.

I'll sing my evensong for you,
never agnostic to your unbraiding tug.
