49. Party

I got my hair cut today!

while Mom is still on chemo,

her seventh regimen in two years.

 

I got my hair cut today!

told the girl to whack off a whole inch,

an act of faith when my hair grows so slowly.

 

I got my hair cut today!

‘cuz I’m going to a Christmas party

and having my photo taken.

 

I got my hair cut today!

although Mom may have a bunch more

appointments in that crazy cancer salon.
