gravity brings down more than just rain

the scissors were shining more brightly in the
light of the sun-shine through the glass panes. and
the golden brown locks of hair hung down so beau-
tifully from her rosy pink cheeks. little kids are
supposed to look gorgeous.

but gravity brings down more than just rain.

every lock fell making a (im)perfect masterpiece on the
floor in front of the curious little girl. but three year olds
don't know that gum doesn't belong in hair and haircuts
make their mommies cry.

i guess tragedies are painted in different colors.
