Barber Shop Jig

wood burned by sun
scoured by lightning
found in a field
after the fire, Jacob reigns now
propped outside the liquor store
needing to be lacquered but
resisting a polish, the great Indianís
head smiles, a gentle moment,
but customers rub his nose
until he dances,
the perpendicular
flouted by passion
for the dance,
his bear skin
flopping with each jump.

I probably honestly don't quite get this, but it matters not because the gaiety and spriteliness of the images are living and speak for themselves. Given one of a hundred different titles, you could be creating here quite a number of different scenes and scenarios - like sets on a stage: all intriguing and compelling, as is this particular "dance"! Love the compression in this, actually making the words "jump". TY Kate xx

visions of the old fashioned barber shop with indian in front, saw one in an old movie on tv the other day. Always wondered what the meaning was;-) Good one Larry!

This is very interesting Larry and reminds of the song Okacalija probably misspelled but the song Poor Okacalija he never had a kissed. Poor O he don't what he missed.
