[ SK ] Beverly, elated

—immortalized in Art;    
 
Poor Town's Plain Jane    
elevated on a pedestal above    
crude scrawls in washroom stalls    
and locker room rumors    
   
Your hair is winter fire    
 
Ohh, the backflash    
of those words!    
 
January embers    
  
blazing sacrosanct moreso    
than any ancient ritual    
 
My heart burns there, too.  
   
chasing away shadows    
within the cold chambers of hers    
having had its fair share of    
beatings for almost three decades    
   
ever since she first read the poem    
and for the first time in her life    
was blessed to know    
the joys of a boy's    
Love
