The First Time I Nicked Myself Shaving



it was all white tile & red wine


small picks of thin hair & a bright-eyed scrap

cycloptic tissue shred pronouncing


                        I'd become a man                  & no matter all the times I did the deed or waxed 

whatever clean

    the hair came back every full moon 


& father never mentioned how to keep it smooth
