After Medusa, Newtown

By | 1 December 2009

The scissors hissed.
Each blind and fearful snip. Always imagining
his nimble fingers hardening to stone.
Medusa's hairdresser invented
the asymmetrical bob
centuries ahead of fashion.
He's titled Art Director now, the salon
gleams in polished stone.
He never meets the client's eyes.
They only think this means he's gay.
