The Sleepover

The Sleepover

It seemed like the right thing to do
Refresh her ponytails
Make her look nice
for church

But I knew when I saw her
the dilemma she faced
when she innocently took down those two
unassuming braids

Like a nuclear explosion
tightly twisted locs became
an unruly mass of thick, unmanagable

I chuckled as I leaned into my husband's ear
A puzzled, "how do you know?"
was his query

But I knew
she would never again venture there
if the kids had another
