This is what they do not tell you,
that you can cover them up,
but your roots will always rise
and break open the perfect falseness,
About this poem.
So I am writing this and the first draft of the third line said “But your roots will always show”. I HAD to change that line or every woman I know who dyes her hair would make a comment.
As to the poem? Well, it’s not about sidewalks. You can figure the rest.
