My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

the curious barber – April 7, 2014

“the curious barber”


before the first worm is found

by the earliest bird

in his tiny shop the barber sits


perched high on his chair

legs crossed behind a billowing newspaper

stretched on yardarms

like a black-striped sail

taut with winds of change

carrying the curious barber

across illumined waters

-which only hours ago

were passing under a bridge-

through the teeming sea

of human life

into a dawning day
