JoLynn by Jakob Chapman

fiery hair fantasy
makes me nervous
like Brand or Bleys
or she who is white and
“ fair”
(Celtic pale)

makes me stare
which memory
keeps me warm
when all other lights
“go out”
(fire of Galadriel)

but I love
the picture
of her new shoes
“little brown boots”
(modern Caligula)

mid-calf suede
(gloves of Sweden)

kept in her wallet
to show me
“simple gifts”
(Appalachian Spring)

which memory
warms my sheets
at night
begs my attention in
(my red-haired Giffen good)
