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


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
