Atmospheric Decisions

September 6, 2011 § Leave a comment

Grand Old Man of Space,

Poor-box objects observed from the air,

Fresh winds sighing,

Suggest atmospheric decisions.

The G.O.M.O.S. is an octogenarian who reportedly flies under his own power.  Most of the other persons—those I know about—who populate this assembled-sentence world have never seen him and think he’s a myth.  But I suspect he’s real, and supernatural in a reluctant sort of way.  Certainly he does things that are beyond the comprehension of mere mortals:

Old man dipped down

and shook barrels of wet sugar sacks.

Hours in steel-toed boots

kept him grounded.

His strange tasks serve some sort of purpose.  I am searching for an explanation.
