Poem for my hairdresser, draft no. 1

You’ve done my hair for nearly decades

My tresses are your biz

You’ve steered me clear of mishaps,

Re-righted untamed frizz.

You’ve also given guidance

On gifts and techno stuff

Michel’s got multifaceted talent--

And won’t take any guff!

How can I ever thank you

For camouflaging my gray,

And teaching me how to pat dry

And to flat iron strays?

A hairdresser’s job even improves

her clients’ mental health,

which is why you’re getting a poem

And wishes for happiness and wealth.
