The Curriculum Vitae of Samuel Menashe

Curriculum Vitae by Samuel Menashe (1925-2011)

Scribe out of work
At a loss for words
Not his to begin with,
The man life passed by
Stands at the window
Biding his time

Time and again
And now once more
I climb these stairs
Unlock this door—
No name where I live
Alone in my lair
With one bone to pick
And no time to spare
