Kit Kelen #895 - towards 60

towards 60
intimations of mortality

apologies to the bro for an idea in his juvenilia

long gone
in less than I have lived

things forever wrong with me
won't be forever now

now prisoner of every choice
and of the way it is
and weather

still setting forth
the bones of it

bring your own aches here
be winter
some days froze to attention
still scribble

a little bird telling
fell off the twig

so many have passed on
now you can read the lees
(guess that means less than half full)

you get that drowsy numbness
give it way

with every third thought
clouds show riches

better have another crack

long gone
in less than I have lived

it won't be long forever
