Losing your hair

A strong wind was blowing
The air was filled with human hair
It covered your face and your anorak
It blew along like a great flood of human hair

Men were dismayed
Women screamed
Everyone was losing their hair
They woke up as bald as babies

The wind blew across the ground
A hair storm filled the whole sky
Hair was trapped in the trees so they looked like heads
Hair clogged the drains and the air vents

What’s worse, if you ventured out
You immediately breathed in clumps of hair
Brown, black, white, blonde, long and short hair
And you began coughing and gasping for breath

Like the hair that’s trapped in plug holes
Like the hair on your pillows and duvets
Like the hair you vacuum up from your carpet
Like the hair on your cot collar

A great hair filled wind blows from east to west
Overnight it had taken all the females hair
All the perms and peroxides and hair dressed hair
It was blowing it away, taking it away

Everything was grounded, aeroplanes, peregrine falcons, bats
No one went to work
This wind blew for several days and went where no one knows
People stayed indoors and locked their windows tight shut

It was the strangest, most surrealist thing that ever happened
No one has been able to understand it
A whole generations hair blew away in a great storm
Blotting out the sun, the moon and the stars
