A Collection Of Haiku Dedicated To My Facial Hair

When she asked if she

Could wax my forehead, I thought:

What the fuck, forehead


Stubborn and constant

My tweezers do not phase you

Whiskers, you are fierce


A single chin hair sprouted

My friend was beside herself

I have a neck pelt


The light is perfect

Chameleon whiskers exposed

Mirror in my car


If white hairs suggest

Wisdom, then my eyebrows are

Perceptive old crones


I was feeling brave

“Let’s wax your nostrils!” she said.

Sea urchins lurk within

Therapist: And what do we say when we feel like this?

Conquering the thing.
