The secret language of hairstylists.
The linguistic and spatial aptitude
required to find
a round silver battery,
that tiny UFO,
in a Japanese department store.
The inexplicable banking
and the dialect of fashion magazines.
I’ve never conversed in the sillification of women.
I’m not fluent in sports.
(Well, maybe a little hockey.)
I did not speak
of standing up
but now I am learning.
