but unlike my mother, Ialways hated my curly hair
i hated it so much,i would pull it back in ponytails so tight my               head would hurt
strangely enough my ponytails hurt my mother a lot more than me
“katie, wear your hair down”                               she would plead

“do you ever wear your hair down?”                           they ask                            and ask                  ...
no.        you answertime and time again
but you can only say ‘no’ so many times           before you cave
and unleash your frizz    on the world
when you do  it’s hard to deny    you absolutelyand completely love      the feeling
of your hair blowing in the windcurls bouncing on your shoulders
and just as you are vowing to never return to the confines of your hairband
you look in the mirror
and swiftly sweep up the disaster
into a compact little bird’s nest      on top of your head.
