Revelation at 67

This morning, for
the first time
since high school

I’m sitting in the sun
without my shirt,
reading and writing
at a table on our porch.

The breeze and light
felt so good

I wanted
more contact,
and without thinking
reached back
and peeled
it off.

Only then
did it occur to me:
“The last time
you did this,
you were seventeen!”

Things
started
speeding up
then,

and it’s taken
this long
for them
to start

slowing
down.

Ahhhhh.
