Bald and Hairy

Bald is pinkish, minimal, contained, defined.
Hairy is dark, lavish, uncontrolled, soft-edged.

Bald wears steel-rimmed spectacles and adds up numbers.
Hairy has reflector sunglasses and bellows songs.

Bald enslaves his wife.
Hairy trashes televisions.
Bald crushes spiders.
Hairy keeps snakes.

Walled Bald wears flannel trousers.
Lairy Hairy stretches lycra tights.
Businesslike Bald has a mortgaged mansion.
Hellbent Hairy has a monstrous Maserati.

Behind every Hairy, there’s a Bald.
