Small Town Barber (poem)

A Dexter treasure,

he stoops from sixty years 

of barbering, now 

joined by his daughter,

customers in bib overalls,

seedcorn caps, work shoes,

nodding politeness,

with country drawls,

the Simpson Shear Shop 

especially busy 

when it rains and farmers 

cannot get into the field. 


  1. Dennis and Dana are amazing people! Good to the core! What a lovely tribute to them, Joy!
