Straight She Is – Lynn Hard

[1938–current, born America, migrated to Australia in 1977]

Straight she is
like spruce or pine
and her hair
if she’d let it
would hang
straight down her back.
Her clothes are firmly divided
into segments
of sweater and skirt.
And to see her sitting
at her geometrical desk
one would never imagine
that inside she is all curve
and arabesque.
