Hair

Some animals have teeth like hair;
others stow venom in veins of their hair.

The kelp sways in the current,
an entire forest of hair.

The houses surround our faces
like manes: a frame of wild hair.

Some things evolved to be carried
from place to place in our hair.

If you find one strand of hair,
any place, it was an accident.

Some of us never meet our fathers.
Is it enough to hold their hair?
