Consciously and deliberately….

My hair has been growing.

In a few weeks,

I’ll hit the 3 month mark,

of the great shave.

It’s grown,

lots,

and it’s much less silver,

than it was a month ago,

I have been experimenting,

with hair product.

I’ve found this hair cream,

that I really like,

and I’m learning,

how to use it,

trippy.

It’s a cream pomade,

it’s super easy to use,

just rub a little,

in your hair,

and comb,

my hair is too short,

to be brushed,

I comb it,

now.

This stuff holds,

without showing,

smells really nice,

and accentuates,

my widow’s peak.

I love my widow’s peak,

I didn’t even know,

I had one,

up until,

a few weeks ago.

I do believe,

I’m vain about my hair,

yes,

I admit it,

I am.

I wonder if George is as vain about his hair, as I am? One of my style icons rockin’ a widow’s peak

It has been a Summer of discovery,

hair wise,

style wise.

Funny,

people had more positive reactions,

to the truly,

short,

the two millimetres,

shave.

They accepted it,

maybe I was sick?

maybe I was being selfless?

But,

this I think,

is much more overtly,

butch,

styled,

experimented with,

consciously and deliberately,

butch.

Some people like it,

some see it as an affront,

but,

most importantly,

I like it,

playing with,

and making it mine,

a uniquely me,

element of my butch,

style.

Later girls,

I am a bookish butch in my very early fifties. I live in Montréal and always have. I used to run a small used bookstore. Reading keeps me sane. My latest jiggie is photography, book project in the works, living the dream

  1. The best thing is that *you* like it! I love changing up my hair style… well, if you can call it style. 🙂 Right now it’s shaved down super short on the right side and the back and longer on the left. I know, I know, the asymmetrical look is outdated, but I like it! And, it’s hair. It’ll look different soon.
