Bald as a Peach, but Clever Like an Apple.

Kerri has albino hair.
She thinks that as it falls
Onto yellow notebook paper,
And compasses instinctively
Between blue lines,
That it’s spelling introductions
She’s muting due to anxiety.

I tell her that’s poetic.

How?
She says.

Because cipher is important.
I reply.

You’re dedicating your life to nothing?

Exactly.
I reply.

She plucks each follicle
From its origin
Until she’s bald.

Am I still poetic?
She questions.

As often as I am dead.
I reply.

Huh?
She says.

Exactly.
I reply.
