Each foot down
on our wooden floors
is in protest; after all,
we are all older tonight;
perhaps this knowledge
will be useful
in the future
when we are scrubbed clean,
rubbed of our age back
to a fetal position;
we are an old couch
in our den, the boots
on the floor, the wishes
of our youth

Our lives have their own
poverty, their own poetry;
their own master; love is
the same: yearned for
evenly, as a red bird
desires through blue
times; it blooms nightly,
even in the dead dawn
of yet another dark winter

Wow. Having recently celebrated (bemoaned?) a birthday that puts me squarely in the ranks of the aged, the first stanza struck home; the second filled me with hope.

Thank you, timmy, for being such a poet.

Thank you, timmy. The key is to maintain a proper distance and be given, as Edd says, fabulous lighting.
