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

alone

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
