At the Mercy of a Barber
by David Smith September 17, 2010
At the mercy of a barber, the vulnerability that I feel;
Laidback and defenceless and ready to squeal;
As the razor slaps across the belt;
Applying the steel, emotions do melt.
To put that much faith in an ordinary man
As he shaves the neck as close as he can.
To hear the cut of every tiny hair;
As a face is prepared for affection to share.
To keep in touch with our mate;
To get past the barber
His skill is at stake.
Vulnerabilities show, eyes shut and laidback;
Preparing for my spouse;
The same emotion on track;
To expose vulnerability at the mercy of a wife;
That bondable trust to eliminate strife.
