I see you as love and love alone, and curl in response, to express my joy at witnessing you. To tell you my tale and share myself with you. Look into my curls and understand that that is you, as you look upon me with wonder, and touch me gently to see how the curls have evolved each next day. Each next view.”

To the curls then: Yes, I have seen you. Yes I have. Oh, my heart.
