(7th of June / Lagos, Nigeria)

BEHOLD SHE IS


Behold She Is
Archaically Old Fashioned
Wearing Her Loose Straight Dyed Clothes
More Plain in the Eyes of Common
At All Not Pretty

Yes She Wears Her Hat to The Back of Head
And Shave Her Legs Not
To Many an Unbecoming Unfortunate Creature
Considered Fair Bait For Teasing And Torment
But To Me, a Rare Person to Cherish
