your eyes “meet” my hair first
I offer a hug
I am that gal
you close in
only to touch my hair
you feel it
you ask a million questions
I repeat what I said the other day
My hair just like yours has a texture
I let you feed your curiosity once again
like I am a picture at your disposal
This crown of tight curls is my hair
just like your hair.

Amusingly enough I was once with my daughter in a black beauty shop and the ladies wanted to feel my very fine, very thin hair. It was funny to be on the other side of that interaction.
I have found it really interesting how much people are curious about hair. But , most of the time it’s my close friends that still insist on touching my hair. Perhaps it’s because they know it bothers me. I love them still though.
That’s funny. My friends tease me too.
