The Brown-Haired Scholar

She was a brunette Elle Woods,
with her retro candied apple lipstick
& Eighties crimp,
filling out the vintage colors she wore
a little too snugly.
Through 12 semesters
of caffeine binges,
math lab hours,
writing tutors,
extracurriculars,
solidifying soft skills,
sharpening hard ones,
& breaking her own records;
through changing her mind
(if no one else’s) &
learning from examples,
as well as her own,
inspired by those examples,
she found herself more capable
than she had ever allowed herself to be.
