“Hard Look”

 

You could easily

mistake her

for one of

the boys

if it wasn’t

for the slim

outline of her

body,

her attitude

and disposition

gives her the

appearance

of being on

the verge of

a fight

and if you

knew her

personally

you knew then

that was always

a strong possibility,

she squared up

her shoulders

at the first

sign of a

confrontation

be it physical

or verbal

staring into your

eyes

as she speaks

to you

ready to back-up

any words that

she throws out

at you,

her face when

made hard

would make most

men

walk away

and call it

good

not wanting to

play against those

unpredictable odds

she staked

in anything

she was involved

in,

she puts all

her drive

and dedication

into anything

she sets her

mind to

for her

competitiveness

is part of

her nature

a trait she

couldn’t keep

buried

even if she

wanted to,

she never found

the need

to inject herself

into the current

conversation

just to feel

like

she was part

of the reading

circle

unless of course

you made a

nasty remark

about her beloved

Packers

football team

then all bets

were off,

but once you

got her talking

letting her see

you weren’t a

threat

to her having

a good day

or good time

you would start

to see her

stance soften

shoulders relax

her intense

challenging stare

into your eyes

would change

and become

very inviting

beckoning you

to look back

deep into her

shades of blue

where if you

weren’t careful

you could

wander in

and get

lost

and if you

were lucky

enough

to keep her

so engaged

that she gave

you a smile

that hard facade

she wore as

a mask

would fall away

and the delicate

lines

of her face

would capture

your gaze

and you would

never have

believed

you could have

ever

seen her

as anything

other than

a woman…
