Mr Bowman..my first employer
was an office manager of Western Union
in small town Colorado..
I as delivery boy with my new bicycle
mobility and freedom limited this day..
Saturday earnings replaced Saturday play..
I found time as burden as time can be
time between telegrams oppressed
as I found suffering of separate self..
Mr. Bowman reinforced the illusion
of which I speak..
So let me say: may he rest in the peace
which we both were seeking
in those now remembered
time passages of youth...
