Fine combs from Persia (a tale of the Messiah)

I heard that the Messiah
was seen recently
in Umeå

building sailboats
making sandals
and painting
her toes

Her dark
brown hair
and dark
brown
eyes
are of a
beauty
hard
to
deny

Yes
her mahogany
hair
flows down her back
and in her eyes
there is a life
beyond that
we can describe

Only some privileged
few have learned
her real name
but in this life
she goes by
many it's said

She has the power of one
to grant a reprieve
and wherever she goes
she is so thus received

She moves across the market square
and vendors tidy their stalls
and begin to stare

They offer her fruits and savories
from all parts of the Northland
for free
fine combs from Persia
for her hair
are bestowed

And they pray she'll come back
tomorrow,
but really
no one knows
where and when she
will re-appear and
whether the place
she will call
herself
home
is far or near
