Fringe





 Fringe

 

In the seventies, I envied girls who wore

halter tops and hot pants. Hippy chicks

 

who wound their hair into a spiral

of desire, waiting to unfurl at a touch,

 

 wearing the space of long-haired guys,

dressed in tie-dyed t-shirts and Levi jeans.

 

I stood wrapped in a leather jacket,

raked my fingers across the fringe.

 
 

Robin Wright

She has also co-written two novels with Maryanne Burkhard under the name B.W. Wrighthard, Ghost Orchid and A Needle and a Haystack.
