A Poem Found in Life?

Some free verse or just choppy prose. I don't write poetry much these days. Judge tenderly of me.

In A San Francisco Bookshop

I saw a man
In San Francisco
At a bookstore
Near The Purple Onion,
Through two Pairs of spectacles
Double decker,
Stacked one on top of the other.

A scholar
A reader of books and thoughts
Against body and
Time's degradation,
God's infinite jest.

I like it. Makes me think a bit of the Twilight Zone episode "Time Enough at Last."
