Happy Valentine’s Day!

A non-poem for Valentine’s Day!

The Woman I Love is a Hairdresser

The woman I love is a hairdresser,

She cleanses me, conditions me

and straightens me out.

She massages me, untangles me

and combs out my doubt.

 

The woman I love is a hairdresser,

She trims me and clips me

and snips at my heart.

And I worry that one day

She’ll slice me apart.

 

The woman I love is a hairdresser,

She foams me and sets me

And – boy – does she blow!

But I worry that one day

She’ll wash me and go.http://www.dreamstime.com/-image18243419

  1. Brilliant. Utterly amazing. Why a ‘non-poem’? Happy valentine’s day to you. xxx

    Thank you, Becky – very kind of you. I meant a non-poem in comparison with the work of real poets such as yours.

  3. Trevor says:

    It’s brilliant – it’s made me smile so much. I love your humour, and you!

  4. Lindsay says:
