RED IRISH HAIR

She always wore black

because it was slimming

and 3/4 sleeves

because she didn’t like her arms.

She wore her red hair

tight

in a bun

because she said

the humidity

wreaked havoc

on her Irish hair.

She owned a pair of pink stilettos

that she never wore

because she was afraid

she’d trip

and make a fool

out of herself.

She died.

Her sister

laid her to rest

in a sleeveless

flowered dress

pink stiletto heels

and let her Red Irish hair

loose.

She was beautiful.
