In The Launching Of Another Year.

In The Launching Of Another Year.



Hung up

on the



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


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


of my yesterdays
