Growing Pain


Hold that razor a little closer
to the skin
cut the zits off with my beard.
Make my face smooth again.
It's my first shave
I'm fourteen years old
four years past ten.
I've been here, Mr. Barber,
many times with my father.
He never cried or hollered.
Now my girlfriend says
it's my turn to get a shave
like a man.
I'll hang on to the arms
of this chair.
Please do the best
that you can.
