the headband

the headband was as exotic
as the woman wearing it -
wrapped up in her long black hair.

the headband was an african print,
mustard, maroon,
olive, and apricot.

the headband was simply gorgeous.
so i finally asked her,
"where in the world did you get that headband?"

i imagined the safari,
the elephants and giraffes,
the mysterious little tent with treasures for sale.

she flipped her hair with her hand and answered,
"oh, rite-aid."

wow, i should really get out more.
