I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M STILL HERE

Occasionally
I read
the obituary notices
to see
if I’m in there yet
along with
a lot of my contemporaries
who are.

I can’t believe
I’m still here
watching the world go by
from a safe place
where the worst thing
is the TV news
and books that are truth telling
and the news from neighbors
about other neighbors’ contentions.
