GAIL ENTREKIN
Shaving Our Heads
I say I'll shave my head, become a moon- face bald pink shining defenseless- seeming creature in some kind of funny hat, when your hair falls out in tufts on the pillow case in the morning, your crisp silver beard thins, soft flesh under chin shows through. When we shave our hair, our skin-covered skulls, which we have never seen, will be revealed, embarrassed in their naked whiteness, their lumps and bumps and funny spots, no help for the unfortunate contours of our faces, our strange prominent nose or ears, heads that haven't been seen by anyone since we were babies and our mothers ran their fingers through our delicate fuzz, our fathers palmed our noggins in their callused hands, admired how like heavy fruit we felt, and wondered who was waiting inside these perfect structures, these elegant bony domes.
