Michael Cluff- A Poem

Harrison and Hildalgo


In the northeast niche,
Archie Milliken
started to unmercifully
dyed his greying hair
vastly varying colors
too nearly neon at times
for even liberal comforts.

All because over in Valmonte,
a cashier
at a Cuban restaurant
offer him a senior discount
on July 5th
of his 54th year
four months and one week
before 55 would bite
him in the bottom
or elsewhere.

He died last week
his vanity fell on him
heavy mahogany and brass.
