WILLA’S HAIRS

After my sweatshirt comes out of the dryer
I find one on the sleeve.
Driving home from the mountains
one has attached to my ski pants.
When we awaken in the morning
one clings to my chest.
I wonder… after she is gone,
could my green-eyed one be made again
from a single long white hair.
