Old Habits | A Poem by G.S. Katz

I’m locked into old habits
The world is spinning fast
Hopefully not off its axis
And I am embracing the past
Tried and true

Is it an aging thing
Or something else ?

Here’s my list:

I still buy books, need the physical touch

Still write checks, never giving that up

Listen to music on a portable CD player, mega bass

Wear vintage wind-up watches, no battery to replace

Been using the same bottle opener for 38 years

My land line phone is intact and working with clarity

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got the new stuff too, I’m as
electronic as anybody. And embrace the technology. But
traditions remain, time tested and true

Any questions?
