You know how God says

every hair on our head

is numbered?


And remember the girl

who would rather die

than give up the code

tattooed on her scalp

beneath the shock-horror wig?


Well, love is like that.


Just the whiff of citrus,

coconut oils and

merest hint of spice


and I want him to take me,

take me by lengths

of my luxuriant, tapered mane


and to pull, pull hard…


Did I tell you about his fingers? 

Long, strong and just so muscular

for a salon senior stylist.

Soft and sensual. That last bit, said off-hand like that is sigh-wonderful. Take me to the salon now! Very well written. --Charlie

Oh you had me going girl, but a great day at the salon is almost as good as, well you know.

Kate ~
Love the hair wash, fragrants lucious. Except when the
hot water heater quit. Fun and clever.

Quite a witty good Franco poem, Kate. Having a salon stylist license myself, I truly enjoyed this one!!! My fingers are not so strong, and people fall asleep in my chair pretty often, so guess no pulling or scalding like Christine Tsen got.....just the mint and sherbet-scented shampoooooos ooolala ~~ Diana

So clever!
The last time I was at a salon I fainted off the chair from the hot water, and had to leave with only bangs cut!
But it is relaxing, and especially because you have such luxurious hair that can be pulled and pulled...
I have to brush softly on mine or I'll end up bald.
Oh it's late but I came to read and I'm glad I did !
Having fun I hope xx

You got me. I love the way you got my attention from the very beginning and then you zinged me with that awesome ending. Way to go. Good to see you back
Peace and love

Crap! Had me all fired up to be brutally let down, Kate. I'm cringing. Cringing, I tell you.

Oh, you cheat, you. Taking us all the way to end to find a hairstylist as your passion machine. But, you know how I appreciate discovery, so BRILLIANT!
