Treasure Island

shimon weinroth


Old and Fashioned


old and fashioned or biologically adept

familiarity is cozy
but in the end,
tends to kill interest
routine sets in

and gangerene of bore,
begets ignore
betrayed by habit
search for unfamiliar,

change seeks us out,
risking comfort
we cross the bar
set foot on other shores

before was familiar
discarded and replaced
by now and tomorrow
of new frontiers,

having left,
long before departure
added the excuse
variety, the spice of life

i would counsel
adapting with change,
stability and constancy
have their merits
need no justifications
