Aging’s a rich
and humbling thing,
when the mold gets
inside the great
fortress of the body
and try your best, it won’t
do what you want any more.
A wheeze won’t go away,
a limp, a back injury
85% healed, but never
what it was, and you
have to say, yes,
I’m walking down the hill now,
only yesterday it was up,
into the morning, a great adventure,
but it’s good to come home, slowly,
you’ve had the adventure, after all,
it’s good to come home.
