It’ll Grow Back

#1 Post by Billy » 16 Jul 2019, 23:57

It'll Grow Back

I say, "I'm sorry,"
run into her office

like Samson to Delilah
after a haircut,

as sorry for the hacking
as for what I'd done.

You expect a haircut
to change everything.

The world will be different.
Pillars that blocked the way

will crumble. I'll be a
new man and everyone

will see. I brood
over the buzz cut.

It takes a few days.
It grows on you--the new

look. Of course,
your hair grows, too.

Ultimately, you say,
"It'll grow back,"

shrug your shoulders,
"It's not the end of the world."
