 To Luisa Casati


Even when her hair was aflame with orange

they would never call her ‘Ginger’.

Ginger was her choice 

sometimes.

Like the snakes.

Did anyone shout

“snakes alive” with shock

when they saw her living jewellery?

I wonder.

I wonder

how they reacted to the emerald sparks

from her burning fires.

With wonder

I think

always with wonder.

How else could you view her

alive

as a work of art.
