What is it to you?

What is it to you?
Perhaps nothing,
but it is Everything to me.
What is it to you?
perhaps a strand of DNA,
but it is Everything to me.
What is it to you?–
Perhaps something
to dye and chop,
but it is Everything to me.

Like Ladies in Fairytales,
Like Jewesses
Before the Common Era,
Like Ancient Greek Goddesses
Like Mermaids & Nymphs,
Like Shakespearean Women–
I, too, have Long Locks,
raise not!–
a scissor to them.
