Known you since high school; yet

I’ve known you for the last 2 years.

Early mornings, late nights

Text, call, or pop-up

You make time for me.

Tending to my scalp, probing me to think deeper, differently

An expert with a razor, shaping up my rough edges with tough love

Fade master, blending quick wit and bohemian cool

Taming my bear, tempering my anxiety while encouraging my passions.

Social Worker



Barber — I’ve seen you do it all




Stubborn — I’ve never seen you fall

We talk about sports, about relationships, about life, about more

Every time it’s we, never me — could this be

You’re engaged, I engage — in the chair as we gauge

Fade, Caesar, Taper.
