It just felt right to include a daily poem from Thom on our Gonzo blog and when I approached him to do so, he replied with in seconds!!! Thom is a great talent and just wants to spread poetry, light and positive energy across the globe. If we at Gonzo can help him do that - why not?"
AGE ENTERS (SLOWLY)
your ears miss too much-
even hearing aids require volume levels
your eyes(even with glasses.blur
You are becoming an operation/ for spare parts
are running out(you cannot../Think wheelchair
Are you ambulatory?Can you see my hand?How many fingers?
i got this gift of years from my ancestors
first great grand then grand then father /mother
now i carry their DNA in strains that also age.
It is not so much the weight of years
more the gravity.Weight slips slim thin.
A gauze between the world and skin.
If i fall,a broken.Bone brittle/asking
how long will you carry this flesh
when it cannot carry itself?
