That to be blonde

How funny is it
That to be blonde
May
Mean a myriad of things

One who is blonde is
Demure
Pure
Alluring
Matronly
Dull
But never boring

Blonde is thought to be a mark of perfection
Strong Nordo-centricism
Stronger white supremacy

Are there not a brunette with the same attributes
Are there not matronly persons with red hair
Or black
Or pink
Or no hair at all

Why does such arbitration continually define us
Mere colors shape who we are
Far more
Than a more fair method
Talent
Devotion
Piety
Character

Who decided this
How do we fix it
Do we

She went out easy.
With previous dogs, there came
a moment of spiritual shudder,
sometimes a visible struggle.
Not here. By my side
under my touch I feel the chest
rise, fall, rise, fall. And rise no more.
Without a sound the heart rests.
Life departs. A border crossed,
as if she welcomed the end
of cancer’s grip.

I tuck dog legs against dog body.
They are immediately
different, dead weight
utterly unlike a living limb.
Her eyes remain half open
as she so often slept.
She seems half-alert in death.
Still she is warm and has
that marvelous Dakota fur,
the only blonde
I’ve ever loved.

there’s a blonde woman who visits my dreams
Elsewhere

1 day ago

there’s a blonde woman who visits my dreams
her face changes
but her eyes look at me the same
she follows me when my eyes are closed
and whispers into my ear when I’m not awake
I can’t hear her words but
she says them with a smile
she is warm and glows
underneath my eyelids and inside my head
when I pretend that the world doesn’t exist
she is death or she is life
but she is something larger than me
next time I see her
I’ll ask her for her name

You were a blonde before that
Elliot-Jane Lewenhart

I've got a thing for Blondes and Blues
That category can fit you
Just last you died your hair blue
You were a blonde before that
So that makes two

Don't mistake or anticipate
Because truly
No one else can fool me away
from my love for you

Just because a pretty girl walks by
And she catches my eye
She won't be as beautiful as you
Believe me I have tried
And I have cried
Don't you know I'm still in love with you

So yes you may assert
Any type of the works
You could change any of your features
Or put ears on like a creature
But you will still be the most beautiful girl

So go on and change you're hair, your eyes
Go and become rural
And make my mind paint you like a mural
Because you are a Mona Lisa
Make my heart jump to meet ya
Cause I got a thing for you

You know, I've always had a thing for blondes.
Strawberry, platinum, yellow;
waves, curls, stick straight.
Maybe it's the way its color is so, so
disparate
from the ebony waves that circle my face,
like a lion's mane.
One white light,
the other black like
a cloudy night sky.

You know, I've always had a thing for blondes.

Or maybe it's just yours.
