today i walked to the library to spend my lunch hour. on the way i saw an old man with a mohawk. was he homeless?

inconclusive. he was dirty, but he had also recently had a haircut.

i thought of my grandfathers with mohawks, but they both passed in the eighties. their faces/hair have blurred.

i thought of my lone living grandparent, my grandma. with her red hair shaved into a mohawk, wearing her photochromic lenses. during the war, she was a WAC or a WAV.

i didn't find out she dyed her hair until i was a teenager.
