The Nomad – Damon Bruce

We met Damon Bruce (Linkedin) when he joined Sightly at the end of 2011.

When he isn’t running marathons or being the Director of Software Engineering at MagnaFlow, Damon is helping architect Zen Accounting Systems and the platform underlying CoAuthor.

He has a mailbox in Murietta California but lives in a 45 foot RV that he pulls with the biggest truck I’ve ever seen.

I wrote this poem after seeing him for the first time in 10 years.

The Poet and The Nomad

The Poet and The Nomad
They lived just off the grid.  
They’d stop and tell their story  
Weekdays for twenty quid.

The Poet and The Nomad
Met when they were young  
No money for a roadtrip  
No lyrics to be sung.  

The nomad traveled, the poet wrote  
It wasn’t much to see.  
Both of them were quite content  
Living destiny.  

Years went by without a note  
No sonnet for the road  
The Pupil and the Mentor
Brought them back into the fold.

They imagined they could tell the tale  
That through others would live on  
They tried and failed and tried and failed  
They learned and they tried on.

The Poet just imagined.  
The Nomad he just planned
How to get from here to there  
On this gas across this land.  

The Poet was delighted  
The Nomad had his trip.  
In his giant moving house  
His cab to see the colors,  
A drop to free his grip.
