June 16, 2009

I will not cut it
short and stubbly
like your cologne

I will not cut it
in wild designs
like your desperate
musicians and filmmakers.

I will not cut it
so neat and comely
that my face would be
remiss without it.

I will cut it once, without warning,
delight in your faces,
then wake the next morning refusing to shave.
