Ivory Tower-Georgia Park

If I shaved my head clean
would you stop
paying attention to me
would you just drop it

if I moved into
an ivory tower
and painted the ceiling
all pretty colors
would I become a better person
without the distractions
of these horrible men?

the answer is,
I’ve done it,
several times
for long periods

and I always end up
missing the attention
of the one man
I hope to connect with

I haven’t met him yet.
