Now that I'm old,
though often told "You'll never
be old," by admirers conspiring
to make me feel better by e-mail and letter,
my balance is not what it used to be.
I'm far too vain to use a cane,
and though needing a boost
to be loosed from my chair, I
accept the dare to gird my loins
and Youth-en backwards.
