that day – prelude (1)

it began with with lots of blonde hair

being pulled back

and getting curled

and sprayed in place

filling an entire bathroom and mirror

just as it always has

for more than two decades.

never would I want to miss

on that day

those who’ve been there

since the beginning

and those who’ll be there

regardless of style or success.

zipping up the dresses,

putting on those shoes

and opening the door toward downstairs

portrayed the height of the prelude

to the day of days

I’ve lived through so far.
