Red Headed Lover and Ice Cream

The red headed woman
who swallows men like air
the one with gauze
and the deep entwined stare
is in my roots

I lift my chin
then my shoulders
I lift my heart
and then my mind

but at the end of the day
make fancy salads with cheese
and nuts,
binge watch movies
while I slurp up Ramen noodles,
and top it all off with ice cream
covered cookie dough
