an unmarried woman
or maiden
had her hair unbound
falling about her shoulders
as an invitation
and a signal

her ambition to bind
her hair her life
to another

this girl — hair bound
but falling free
about her shoulders
blindfolded by hair
and binding black as fate
all ambition gone

her hair her life
shortly to be taken
by another
