In his long-life room,
This gray thread-bare lazy boy,
Cluttered bed beside –
This little-active corner
Frequented between naps.
Liquid eyes far off,
Mind-feet shuffling a slow waltz
In no-rhythm time,
Slow reach for bony-ass hurts -
An old sepia-tone print.
Becoming aware –
A cat nestled under arm,
Basketball from right to left.
The speed, the youth, the LIFE!
Reluctant to rise,
(A thought completely outside,
Bursting corner bounds)
Then settling back and sighing –
Chores? Guilt. PAIN! – procrastinate.
