Black girl hair…

Can I touch it, can I feel it?

What is it like?

Do you wash it every morning, curl it, or dye?

Is it soft, manageable, does it tangles in knots?

Can you put it in a bow, loop or tie?

Are you jealous of mine? Am I of yours?

The texture matches the melanin in your pores

I have white girl hair

Boring, soft, blunt Caucasian strands

I long for hair that doesn't tangle with wind,

String and straight, twining my hands

Maybe for an hour, maybe for a day

I'll borrow your weave for which I can play

Until then, may I touch your black girl hair?
