getting a color change – poem ana christy

 

getting a color change

the receptionist-

the barry manilow leather- faced bitch

gives me the once over

the brown creases in her make-up

crack with her verbal assault making

her look more like a camel than a

barry manilow

so you want to consult another stylist?

 

all i wanted was a color change

from black back to red

no biggy

and she said she could do it

and it wouldn’t be hard

 

four hours

four bottles of hair color remover

four bottles of red dye

four bouts with the 100* hair drier

$50 and up!

 

an emergency call to the clairol hotline

to no avail

you gave a red streak right down the

center of my part and the rest still black

broken and brittle

a skunk on drugs

 

i began to walk out

my hair soaking wet

yelling at the bitch that i am not paying

and that they ruined my hair

 

i left mad

angry hair dripping over linoleum.

ana christy from beatnik blues
