1968 Talking About The Revolution

Rating: 3.6

I took off my glasses
that I might see
I took off my shoes

The one I was in search of
The one I never had

'I took off my shoes/that I might be/the one I was in search of..' snared me. That's poetry, the real thing. Great poem, Tom. Keep those insights coming.

I to this day do not wear a watch. Because when you do someone will always ask you for the time and then you have to admit that you don't know.

Tom, you sounded like you might have been a flower child way back then. With daisies painted all over your skin getting ready for Woodstock no doubt. Great poem my friend. Top marks and thanks for sharing this witty piece with us. David

I agree with Carolyn, very nice and I had to read it a few times. Not because I found it hard to understand, your language is simple and direct, but I think there are ideas within that are rather complex. At least, it sets the mind to wandering.

This is just a poem- - - an abstraction (a great understatement!)
