Signing Out

The barber's final ceremony,
scissors shelved,
all the ways you used to be
thrown out with your hair.

A house fire's sloppy augury,
your life transformed
through combustion
as neighbors look on.

That post-shift shower --
your beer sweats
as water mats your hair,
hot honey drizzle.

Time irrigates the day,
a well-worn baptism.
