OLD MAN II

A faint softness of night, stole
along slabs of cement, slipping
from dream into death and out again
sufficient fate of old men that  lived
to forgive, sense of past tense
of memory stock: mute shades
of shapes, in surface shadows
shuffled, below dark overhang
foliage of groves, abutting the walk .
