How would you like your hair today Madame?
(the usual prelude to hours chez le coiffeur)
Subtle? No way, I want it vivid.
Trim the tips and split ends,
gently comb through with number thirty-two mix
and leave to fix under that lamp thingy.
Would you like a coffee, Madame?
Hello Magazine? Or Country Life?
Hmm. I think Hello goes with this hair colour.
Voila, the silly old biddy drifts out,
her sparse red waves tinted
with insidious highlights of purple.
The Wordle words were: tip, fix, tinted, preludes, vivid,
tinny, drifts, nick, waves, gentle, limbs, insidious, split. I used all but three.
