STATIC VIEW
(6/13/17)

the sun

three
birds

a loaded
burro

I'm stretching
my calves
so am
in one place
for a couple
of minutes
during
the daily
workout

staring
at the same
art
upon the walls

now
in my late
50s

how much
time
of significant
exercise
is left
for me?

10

20 years?

doesn't seem
like much
after
all the rest

odds are
that some day
I'll be
immobile

looking
at the same
things
until
I die

while those
purposed
with my care
do the moving
for me

I am
more conscious
of my usual
surroundings
as the years
go by

never knowing
which scene
will eventually
be
my heaven

my hell
