Braids fell out of their interlocking
The same way
Two snakes would have
Untwisted their bodies
If they fell
from a branch
To the ground.

But once you combed out the hair
It separated into
Delicate strands,

That didn't look like a solid body

Soft ringlets that danced out of her scalp
Long and looping
And particularly charming.
