Canadian Poet Hair

With all those frizzing wisps standing free
from the keen faces of our Canadian poets
It is hard to deny

the presence
of a prescribed aesthetic

of a genetic predisposition
toward the production of metaphor and
tactless, accurate nut-shelling of experience

the curling locks an indication
of a refusal to accept
that which is uncomplicated
or unapproachable

or unspoken
