Tuesday Poetry: I Grew a Beard Before it Was Cool

Once I was able, I grew out my beard
I had a full beard when I was 18
I tried goatees and mustaches
But I felt most comfortable with a beard
Always trimmed, never the hipster mountain man
I am the guy with the beard and the glasses
Around 2014, beards came back into fashion
Now almost every guy has a long, gross beard
I still keep mine trimmed
Everyone says I have a beard because it’s popular
I’ll still have a beard when it’s not fashionable
My beard will keep growing after I’m dead

From the poetry collection Cats, Coffee, Catharsis.
