for jessica

she wore her skin the color
of a mint of sun-stroked gold
stretching smooth like soothing music
telling stories once untold

her hair was long, black rivulets
spilt like onyx folds
to land upon her shoulders
like an anger uncontrolled

her voice rang proud and brassy
loud and sassy notes of bold
the burning ice of salsa
scars forever with her scold

her beauty is unparalleled
from her they broke the mold
and left all us mere mortals
a stunning vision to behold


jessica, i'm still working on it, but here's rough draft! i've actually been inspired by a few folks from arizona, so i've got alot more writing to do!
