Spanish Moss an unruly teenager?
by Laurie Kolp

Why must you hang around
like long stringy bangs
on an unruly teenager?

Your dark and mysterious wisps
smother a jaded beauty within
leaving impressions of
oblivious violation,
while your thick
dark cobwebs
entangle branches
of a ravished,
victimized body
and cloud the truth;
I see you in shades of gray
looking back at me like a rebel.

A bittersweet image~
an all-consuming parasite
with long stringy bangs
on an unruly teenager;
you are.
