END TIME
(12/31/16)

the last
day
of the year
seems a finale
for many
things

life cycles

social cycles

financial cycles
of every
kind

aside
from February 29th
December 31st
is probably
the most
lost day
of any year

a write
off

a rev up
for the new
year

I think
of my grandfather
born
at the absoute
end
of 1905

wonder
what he
must've of thought
about having
such an odd
birthday

as a young
man

as
an old man

he's gone
now

along
with another
calendar

and I never
once
thought to ask
him

but my aunt
tells me
that he always
enjoyed
the parties

all seemingly
celebrating
his day
