Cutting The Losses

All lengthening dies; so goes hair and hipster styles,
In what may be the last gray strand touched
On sideburns edged toward thoughts of perfection.
As he sat, motion displaced in the muscles,
He trusted my hands, those appendages
Moving across the hairline like eyes on stanzas.
He is the father, in and out of the abyss,
Though he's in my hands, slow turn-about,
And in his world, closer than I would have thought,

[Hata Bildir]
