Hair Monitor

I have within me a hair monitor’
and you do, too.
They do not obey our wishes
but are obedient to our DNAs.
They deal with many places on our body:
the top pf our heads, our legs, our face, our groin,
and sometimes on our chests.

They determine our hairs quality
and its longevity.
Isn’t it amazing that each one of us
has sprouted hair in many places
and even though we’d prefer to control it
we can still marvel.

And….I’ve been told
that our hair still grows some
after we die.

In this busy and chaotic world
I sometimes count
the strangest blessings.
