The beauty shops have all gone quiet

Chit chat and chatter


Small talk and how are you’s

Are you related to so and so?

Yes yes

Did you hear about that family?

Nodding, smiling, shaking that head

Laugh out loud

Slap your knee

Cracking up

Assume the position

Head down

Faces blank, emotionless

Eyes dull stare

Expert thumbs navigate

Magazines sit unopened

Chairs turned away from each other

I’m busy

Don’t bother me

Humming dryers, singing radio

Voices still
