waking and sleeping
There in the narrow,
mote-filled finger of light, is a blonde
so blonde, so blinding, she is a blizzard, a huge
spook, and lights up like the sun the audience
in its galoshes. She bulges like a deuce coupe.
When we see her we say good-bye to Kansas.
Lynn Emanuel (b. 1949), U.S. poet. "Blonde Bombshell" [poem], lines 10-15 (1992).
