Love plaits

Your hair looks wild she says

And it’s going to tangle and knot by morning. 

Come here 

I give her a wary look because I am not looking forward to what is to come.

But knowing she only has the best of intentions 

I sit between my mother’s legs.

She then proceeds to braid my hair into little love plaits.
