    Do you remember when your barber used a Strop tied to his chair?

    They don't use 'em anymore because they use disposable single-use razors.

    When I was a kid, my dad used to take me to a Barber College, where apprentice barbers were trained.

    The price for a haircut was twenty-five cents.

    I was fortunate to marry a Cosmetologist the first time, and convinced my 2nd. wife she could cut my hair. Thus from age 21 until now, I have enjoyed free haircuts, save for giving up a lifetime of freedom to get them......

    Whetstone
    by Colin Pink


    I broke the whetstone,
    knocked it off the shelf,
    reaching for a book.

    It fell to the floor,
    broke in pieces with a
    sharp clack and snap.

    I fitted them together; they
    balanced like drunks
    one on another.

    Their razor sharp edges
    made invisible joints
    but at the merest touch

    they fall apart again
    exposing the wounds
    of their separation.

    My father was a barber,
    it was his whetstone,
    the surface worn concave,

    honed by his hand,
    year on year spent
    sharpening the blade.

    Watching him sharpening
    the cut-throat razor
    was a childhood fascination

    as he spat on the stone
    and ran the razor’s edge
    over it again and again

    until it bore the shape
    of his life; and still it
    sharpens my memories.
