And I'm Sixty Five

It's gotten real. I am pushing 70. Back five years ago I threw an age snit.

And I'm Sixty Five

So I looked within
and found the old emptiness
still snarling at me
and I took off out
the friggin door and met me
coming and going.

It just sucks being
this way but there it all is
with the big dark hole
calling to me to
fall in and shatter into
ten thousand pieces.
Maybe growing up
helps but then again maybe
not - hasn't helped yet.

The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
