the headband was as exotic
as the woman wearing it -
wrapped up in her long black hair.
the headband was an african print,
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,
wow, i should really get out more.
