A story by Stephanie Lifeline Adams
delilah doesn’t run with her scissors, she does sprint relays with them.
(& not for charity, either.)
the townspeople met the opening of her “literal pedestrian hair salon” with skepticism,
but the thing about delilah is that she has this habit of judging her juries,
& thus generally remains indifferent to their conclaves & requisite rulings.
Hair On the Run does pretty well for itself these days, anyhow –
proprietor & clientele possessing equal levels of insanity,
the cyclical step-snip-step-snip beat of business marking the number of scalps collected.
pounding pavement & shaving lions, delilah delays.
you’ll never meet a more impossible girl…
