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?
