Do I look like I've walked in the rain
With the wind blowing and rising and teasing
My hair into the spokes of the umbrella
And the only option is to painfully sever
Connection of stray hair and head?
Do I look like I should have driven
Taken a peek at the weather
And decided to err on the side of dryness and warmth
To arrive at work still perfectly coiffed
Without damp tights and soggy shoes?
But I don't regret the loss of
Hair or dry shoes
The walk was invigoratingly nice
In a lovely stormy sort way.
