Nor Ton

A burnished crash hat,
you know, the old-fashioned sort sans visor 
the same old imperious eyes, sidelong rooster
and a tash from Colonel Custer
yet somehow the sheepskin coat
builds a cosy Snow Man.

Only the legs in tight leather
look really rock and roll
the face more full
than I remember
someone who knows
after all these years
how to look after themselves

set to travel 
the fifty ways.

  1. Your words draw a vivid picture. But I'm not familiar with 'the fifty ways' he's set to travel (perhaps on his eponymous machine?); what ways are these?

    1. Thank you so much, Nick. I might have been over-egging it: I smuggled bits of three song titles in here. Two by Paul Simon.
