Bad Hair Day

Vi’s weapons of mass seduction
were the talons she got filed & polished
every week,
but crimpers & curlers,
hair dryers & conditioners,
&, as a last resort,
a scrunchie with barrettes,
were her weapons of choice
when it came to fighting a bad hair day,
just as a rug was her hubby’s only choice,
as every day for him was a No Hair Day.
