They say it's her Texas daddy that raised her tough like that,
every self-assured clomp throwing up dust,
and when it settles,
she gives just a single blink

Kitten eyes and tapping noir nails
waiting for his decision
A flick upward to fixate on him,
because
"It's all up to you"

She has it all down pat,
her morals sharpened to a point,
a point but never a claw

And when she has such serenity, you are the only variable
Positive times negative is still negative,
even plus odd is still odd,
solidity plus instability is still instability.
