Crying in the Beauty Aisle of the 24/7 Stop and Shop, 1:36 AM


I will never see hair colored
like my sister’s again.

The hairdresser ran her hands
through the strands. She weighed
each of them.

She has this reddish base—
smoothed her fingers over the pieces—
and these amazing natural highlights.
This isn’t something you can get from a bottle.
