HAIR SHIRT
(5/7/14)


I look
down
to see
a wavy
gray hair
on the front
of my shirt

I try
to brush it
away

but
it stays
put

must
be static

I reach
with thumb
and forefinger
in an attempt
to pull it
free

it slips
from my grasp
and moves
nary a hair

I try
again

increase
the pressure
and really yank
this time

that hurt

I am apparently
sprouting
through my clothing

I have
become
my costume

or my
costume
has become
me
