Old

 

What I know is old:

old furniture, old stories, old songs,

old love.

What I love is old:

old books, old places, old sayings,

and one old man.

 

Write what you know, they say, and so

I write old:

old times, old ways, old words

jostle into the light beside the new

and maybe sometimes

startle with their fresh breath.
