In The Launching Of Another Year.

In The Launching Of Another Year.

 

 

Hung up

on the

birthday

balloon

of my

advancing age,

in a shriveled

and slowly

emptying climb
I am

floating towards

the obscuring clouds

of Alzheimer's oblivion.


Strung out

by the fact

that I will

never touch

the paradise

of youth again,


I have become a

he-lium filled

wilted form of

flesh tones

slipping away.


Soon I will be a

tiny speck

disappearing

into the

vast universe

of humanity lost.


Sadly there

is not enough

cake and ice cream

to weigh me down,
but even so I indulge

in a gluttonous

celebration

of my yesterdays

vanquished.

 

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
