What you think about when you are old

His body lean, his fingers long.

He’ s lying on a bed

but all his thoughts and words and soul

aim well beyond the crippling ”here”

and shooting through a web of no’ s

he feels the sea,

the breeze that hides into a beautiful woman’ s hair

they are on a cruise

enjoying the music, enjoying the dance

and nothing can stop them today.

Not even the fact that he’ s bordering ninety,

has no one to love

and he’ s fading away.
