We Are Amused

Counting my whiskers,
which’ve grown far too long,
as if they’re autumnal maple leaves -

“Red, brown, gold,
red, brown, gold,
red, brown, gold,
red, brown, gold,”

scarcely believing
her eyes aren’t in wrong,
it appears she’s amused
and amusingly pleased!

Artist's Description

My fiance is Japanese and when we were in a bar one time, and I’d let my stubble grow a bit too long, she started pointing at my chin, saying “Red, brown, black, gold” etc. It was the first time I’d noticed that I had different coloured beard hairs. Coming from a country where mostly everyone’s natural colour is black (although hers is beautifully streaked with brown), it was a big novelty for her. It’s one of my fondest memories, since it made me chuckle.
