Tuesday, January 20, 2009: On the Street….Red and Green, Milano


All redheads are related, she said,
The tortoiseshell or plastic of the rims of her glasses
Shining amber, bronze.
And we’re an endangered species.

Four percent of us have ginger, strawberry blonde
Planted in our scalps like wildflowers.
How to protect this shade,
This wildness.
