Once I asked, “Why is Mr. Adams shouting?”
“He’s not,” said my grandfather. “That’s his trombly.”
I’m so glad that the New York Public Library is finally recognizing the literary merits of hair. For years, hair has been quietly writing some of our best novels, plays and poetry. “What people don’t realize?” said the lock of Walt Whitman’s hair, when interviewed, “is that I came up with a lot of the stuff which appears in Leaves of Grass. ‘The world below the brine; Forests at the bottom of the sea.’ Those were my lines – I was the one who whispered those words into his ear!”
It’s high time we give credit where credit is due. Hats off to hair!
