Poet Bio

Running off her hair
Down her brown neck
In swirls and whirls
As troubled soapy water
That would not stay put

Thick in the plastic
Imprisoned viscous fluid
Lackluster solidifying water
Of ingredients manufactured
In the parlours of chemists

Disturbed by the universal
Solvent called distilled water
Its viscosity escapes slowly
Into lather and erupting bubbles
And chases out the dirtiness in her hair
