red heads

  unraveling back, 
backwards unraveled.

  into the backyard running
with the backbone buried.

  running upright in a pair of 
 floppy tounged sneakers.
  koolaid stained lips smiling
 jumping over the mudpuddles. 

  splashing into the mud 
  my clay child running 
 with shoelaces untied.

  unraveling back twenty five
 years watching a little red head
 running around.

  the yard is different but the hair is the same.

    Sweet and nostalgic this is. My mom had really bright red hair but now an old lady, she has lost the bright red and has more subdued color in it, like auburn!
