The Art of Growing Old

By. Autumn Turley

the age of your soul
is not measured
by how many years
your body has existed
nor is it measured
by the number of bodies
in which it has existed
the age of your soul
is measured
by how many times
in the existence of your body
your soul has been born
and died and been reborn again

Autumn Turley is from Magik Land. She plays violin in a SanFrancisco-based rock band called Polyphonic Monk.
