How to use unkempt in a sentence?

  1. Yevgeny Aleksandrovich Yevtushenko:

    I do not like poems that resemble hay compressed into a geometrically perfect cube. I like it when the hay, unkempt, uncombed, with dry berries mixed in it, thrown together gaily and freely, bounces along atop some truck-and more, if there are some lovely and healthy lasses atop the hay-and better yet if the branches catch at the hay, and some of it tumbles to the road.

  2. Len Goodman:

    You dance like your hair: a little wild and unkempt.
