Through The Buzz


So plucking the fine hair growing in your 
ears is considered affectatious - you are 
not supposed to know it’s there; & why I 
ask, if you know that face in the mirror it 
seems reasonable they belong to you, a 
daunting singularly hirsute expression if, 
maybe you’ll laugh, it captures attention 
but - oddly, no one seems to mention it 

except your barber of course - & there it 
is professional interest; any area where 
hair grows they care - so eyebrow trims 
are up there with nostril hair, that beard 
needs a slasher too, but ears; now who 
ever heard that through the buzz?
