The Daisies in Your Hair

By Michael Aaron Gallagher

Jane’s gone home
in her white linen sundress
with her stringy blonde hair
pulled back behind her ears

Her sun-baked confidence
running down to her sandals and toes

Her love is like a lashing
from her daddy’s belt

She leads me on like a golden retriever

I never spoke a word of it
To anyone.
