The barber

Illustration by Börkur Sigurbjörnsson

Listen, said the barber as I sat down in his chair. I have been a barber for 30 years. I have had the hair of uncountable interesting personalities in my hands. I have heard all the stories that exist under the sun. I have had enough. I have no interest in knowing who you are, where you come from or what you are going to do this weekend. I am just going to keep my mouth shut and cut your hair. Understood?
