In the seventies, I envied girls who wore

halter tops and hot pants. Hippy chicks


who wound their hair into a spiral

of desire, waiting to unfurl at a touch,


 wearing the space of long-haired guys,

dressed in tie-dyed t-shirts and Levi jeans.


I stood wrapped in a leather jacket,

raked my fingers across the fringe.


Robin Wright
