Glass enclosure confines

The steam,

Water and steam meet to warm

The body.

Don’t break the seal of the door . . . yet.

Reach for draped towel

To

 Whisk away wetness,

Now dry, it’s safe to open

The door.

Cool air

Allowed to explore exposed skin.

There it is!

                    A hair

                               Lands

                                      On

                                             The shoulder.

A single strand

                      Irritates.

Hands brush it away,

                             Quickly!

Sunlight reveals

Hair floating

Like fall leaves

Settling on the floor.

A final blast

Sends

More

              Strands

                          On

                                Their

                                            Way

What’s that prickling

The neck?

A new battle begins.

It’s a wonder

Any hair

Remains attached.
