Hesitant Haircut (NaPoWriMo #6a)

Braided ladder, thick as rope,
Draped over back or shoulder
Falling freely, a lustrous slope
Bouncy in a pony holder

Coiled and twisted in a bun
Pinned and hairsprayed into place
Tangled flag behind a run
Frames or hides or whips my face
Accidental catcher of crumbs and snow
Years and years shampooed, brushed, grew

Steady, scissors, make no haste
To clear this curtain past my waist
Sentimental regret, but it’s time you go
Kind of exciting

Snip, snip.
It’s gone.
Just like that?
Boo hoo.

I will cut my hair one of these days, and it will feel like this.
