March Madness Top Ten: A question of balance, perhaps/Timea Deinhardt

who can claim to be liberated

if afraid of designs in pale rose on oxblood —

heady perfume and powder

of delicate strands of pearls

wisps of long-brushed hair?

Of course this is just the guess

of a lone crane

short on pin feathers

but I suspect the truly liberated

are those whose head is not screwed on

one way – who occasionally dare

the rear-view mirror

without a smile or sneer.

who just might eternally prefer lingerie

to underwear.
