being founded

one half of the last-
one fifth minus one
of the now, so somehow
soon seventy

and envy me
the brio of 
my scene
stealing
senescence

that hit’s the mark,
Maybe…
To recite the line
gravely
foreshadowing
curtain rising
quiescence

character acting,
only now?
a small role
but prerequisite-
to spot, to prism,
to too soon,
the light
fluorescence

I’m spry yet retired. I reside in the inner city of a major metropolitan area of the United States. I read politics. I watch baseball. I hum along with the tune. I June swoon, and moon the bad poem. Post here, are old and new. Opinions are my very own, except when wrong.
