A Request

Post-pandemic haircut

Aging hair loss.
Balding forehead.
Coarse tresses.
Dreadful curls.
Erratic and frizzy.
Fluffy top.
Gigantic head.
Hilariously asymmetrical.
Irritably layered.
Jet-black and shoulder length.
Kinked and twisted.
Listless and fluffy.
Moisture-less and heavy.
Nicely oiled.
Organically unruly.
Prepped and dyed.
Quirky and unmanageable.
Restless and craving for an expert.
Straw-like but supple.
Tired of home care…
