BELATED SPONTANEITY
(8/20/19)


“you work
too much”

“your house
is old”

“you're
a hermit”

“you're
no fun”

they berated
me
endlessly

those ladies
of the past

my life
wasn't entertaining
enough
for them

soon
I will be
out
of work

selling
my home

with practically
limitless
possibilities

I can go
anywhere

do anything

within reason
of my age
of course

I wonder
into what lives
my women
have settled

I must
remember
to wave
goodbye
to them
all

as I
motor on
out
of this
stale burg
