As time of my days advances
my mind consumes more space
accumulated experience of years
extending my event horizon
as a day’s new light rushes in
I cram for life’s final exam.
Eagerly awaiting the arrival of
new books, frontiers of science
and mathematics explored as I
swim in virtual space searching
lives, knowing new geography
in music and language limitlessness
anxious to finally escape mortality’s
enclosure, compassion for the exotic
colorful birds trapped in their aviary.
