Sadie’s Haircut

As the woman now stood using her scissors

Sadie thought of impermanence

Just like her body would someday quit

Just like her skin cells sloughed off in every instant

Her wet hair was just lying there waiting to be cut

Why then earlier

With warm water pounding her scalp

Fingers prodding

Soap kissing her forehead

Had Sadie finally felt  her heart begin to sing

Tears welled as Sadie worried

Without someone to touch her body

Would she soon stop feeling her soul?
