No Hair Shave

I used to love the feel
The straight blade gently caressing
Strands falling away
Skin baby soft
A perfect palette to start
Wrapped tightly in white when done

No more
No more

Now I do parts and braids
Tediously planning the cut
And then the surgery done
More work to restore clean and tangle-free
Smiles reflected in the mirror
Change is good.
