I wish I wasn’t “one of them”
but I’m afraid I am –
afraid I have joined those folks
who claim many decades and
who often congregate where I live –
not necessarily to celebrate their years
but to live them out as best they can.


I wish I was as good at being old
as I was at being a fashioner of wood –
way back when.
