A Dirge for Old and Absent Friends

We, the aged, often have borne
that ultimate separation --
death; or, worse for some,
banishment to dementia
or to a dreaded exile
at any generic "home",
where visitors rarely enter
and hurry to depart.
Left with our diminished
dim impressions, we all,
confused, recall old errant
conversations, guided gossip,
in half-remembered settings
to which we surviving few
paid scant attention.  But now,
those places, long abandoned,
all assume unmistakable
purpose:  marking for us
the decreasing distance
from our individual fated
final final destinations.
