Twenty-six years since High School. My hair has been a long jungle of gold the whole time and it’s not my hair that’s wrong. Now kitchen shears are poised just above my forehead while I pull a faithful straight up from my scalp. My eyes glitter like river rocks in the bathroom mirror.


The hand with the scissors wears the engagement and wedding rings from Wal-Mart Supercenter’ s jewelry department. If you want, I tell myself, instead of cutting off your hair, you can take those off and drop them in the toilet. One half-carat total weight. Big deal. Who cares? Little glints around a fantasy. Little freaking glints. Big freaking fantasy.
