I cut my brother’s hair today
preceded by a lifetime of not letting me touch it
He’s not tender headed, but I’m tender palmed
so I mostly danced around
trying not to make him regret asking me
I did alright
No bites from the clippers 
and we heaped the leftovers over the porch railing for the birds
or to freak out the neighbors with 2 pounds of stray hair
But don’t get too excited
I’ll probably never be fully allowed to touch it ever again
