[insert clever intro here]
Things coloured South African women think about
He was smart,
Her friends loved him
Thought he treated her well.
It’s just …
It reminded her of steel wool
The type her mom used to scrub the pots with
What if her kids inherited his hair?
She’d have to spend thousands of rands on hair irons.
Not to mention all her time.
No, it simply couldn’t work.
