12 March – Maverick

Ivy launches a new look –
indifferent to seasonal trends;
ignoring the fresh Spring fashions
sported by most of her friends.
She eschews pale green leaf buds,
rejects blushing pink,
disdains cheerful yellow
to boldly do her own thing.
There’s a touch of the goth about her
as she douses herself in black,
living out her own personal Autumn –
trying to bring berries back.
Black is classic and elegant,
it never goes out of style,
Ivy believes herself chicer –
wears a smooth, satisfied smile.
