This Is Too Much

way too much hair
I can’t get cut now
for who knows how long
like I haven’t had it this long
since grad school in Wisconsin
where I tried a few barbers
got lousy cuts
so I let it grow
until I came home to Honolulu for Christmas
then went to the woman
who’d cut my hair
since childhood
and she said
it’s because
they don’t know
Asian hair
over there
