late adulthood

reflection & restriction

in the same way that most people are fond of children

i am fond of the elderly

(most kids are creepy, no? :-))

i have spent many hours at the sides of aged friends

they fascinate me and i envy their histories

i live each day seeking experiences

so that one day

once octogenarian perhaps

i will have stories to tell

and the memory to enjoy them

…just get me a chair with a view, a blanket,

a few kindly young men to flirt with

and someone to listen


this project will count as one of my great stories
