Fixing my hair


Maybe I am daring, sometimes:
Two days before my wedding
I decide to cut my own hair
with clunky kitchen scissors.

Hairstylists just don't seem to get
what I'm going for. No, no,
not smooth! not straight!
Jagged! Ragged! Like rats chewed it!
I hold the edges in a tight fist
and saw through the hair
like snapping ropes
like severing ties.

I still don't get why you didn't just tell them exactly that. :)

Best thing to do is find a picture of this ragged jagged style you so wish to have and hope they do a good job!

Funny, as I watched you and Andrew recite your vows, I actually thought, "Shay's hair looks REALLY good!".

Who needs hair dressers!
