8.5” x 11.5” matted in white and framed in black metal to 11” x 14”

 

inspired the poem: 

 

oh tina

 

tina lived here

on the 6th floor

just high enough off the street

that the fumes

didn’t seep through 

the window cracks

but the noise on the street

kept her from sleep many nights

 

she spent those dark hours

combing her wigs

for having lost her hair

in a cruel battle

to save her life

wigs

her trophies

her crowns

 

her wigs gave

new meaning to life

she could change attitude

with length color and style

she could disguise 

so not to be recognized

 

tresses of orange

when she sang at clubs

 

blond locks 

for a latte at bucks

 

chic short and blunt

when out to lunch

 

selecting sleek black 

for boudoir bedfellows 

 

oh tina

oh tina

the boys would sing

 

oh tina

oh tina

with her many wigs

 

each day expressing 

the woman 

she wanted you to see

 

oh tina

oh tina

we love whatever personality you bring
