[ Stephen King inspired ] 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
