Poem: Boys Who Need Haircuts 

Boys who need haircuts

will tell you it’s intentional—
not juvenile lion imitation.

Boys who need haircuts
hope to attract girls

who are unselfconscious
about their bra straps.

Unselfconscious girls
are not necessarily

those of adequate
self-esteem. She can

be counted on for categorical
plumage, cautious traipse.

Lockered hallway whispers
a syllable that could be yours.
  • A poem by Rachel M. Simon.
