Joseph cut hair for almost a hundred years.
Alongside his brother,
As a barber’s apprentice,
Joseph dug up the dead
To learn cutting hair
After the Germans
Inventing trench warfare.
“Their hair and fingernails
in the grave,”
With tears in his eyes,
Joseph talked about
Cutting Marilyn Monroe’s
Hair before and after
She became famous.
He didn’t believe
She killed herself.
Joseph was in his eighties
When he first cut my hair
Lasting more than a decade.
He saved Scientific American
For me to read.
Joseph was more alive
Than people half his age.
Swapping war stories
Mixed with life’s laughter.
Many of those stories
Still live in my head.

|Interesting tale and perhaps all of Joseph's stories will one day be passed on....
Be always safe,

|We are shaped, if we are lucky, by the Josephs in our life.
A moving tribute, Lloyd. The corn silk that passes for my
hair is trimmed with loving care by a pretty woman who speaks
to me of the places she's been. I tell her about the small
talk I have with the gulls I meet. -gene.

A gentle and wise evocation of a man and a time and a place, a rich biography.
