Mushroom Head

by Chris Sorrenti

In my teenage years
I grew my hair long
Smoked marijuana
To fit in
But blessed or cursed?
With curly hair
In hindsight looked more
Like a mushroom head

Over the years
Accepting my follicled fate
Mop gradually cropped
To fit in to maturity
A respectable line of work

Now during the era
And in middle age
Marijuana is legal
Haircuts not
Without choice
I’m slowly growing back
To where it all began
