Before the First Haircut

Stay the shears one more day.
There’s something to be said
for the hair of a small
child grown wild and uncouth
from birth to this sunny
afternoon. It will be
a while yet before self
awareness and pride can
coalesce into style.
Until then my boy runs
joyfully facing out
into the world, launching
peals of belly laughter.
