my mother used to have braids when she was young
she could weave all kinds of braids
with red tousheng
or two hanging braids beside the ears
or one braid hanging around her waist
later, her mother cut her proud long hair
because it was called a bourgeois’ tail.

since then, my mother never had her hair grow long
she has constant haircuts; perms, dyes her hair, has different styles
also, she likes to arrange her daughter’s long hair
comments occasionally
whenever she sees her daughter’s locks spread over shoulder
she murmurs
long hair is the most beautiful
