Bandanna Joe


I wore a bandanna today
A vermillion piece with a mosaic abstract print
I can't recollect why exactly I did it.......
Maybe to feel like a flagrant renegade
Storming forward with the wind crashing on to your face
Or to feel invincible to your bone
Like a South American revolutionary
Or perhaps I was making a bold fashion statement
That bandannas were back in the saddle
Or maybe the die-hard communist in me awakened
To perpetuate the ethos of the hammer and sickle
Or maybe I simply wanted to subdue my rebellious locks
Clasped in a neatly-wrapped bundle
And just maybe.........
I was yearning to be different, perhaps even unique
For an ephemeral second
