With age you step back from what
is happening, a witness of where
you once were, the importance of
diminished, at times ridiculous
in your mind you see life around
you: business political posturing
movements disconnected from
your tangential vantage, a parallel
divergence on a poetic plane endowing
license to see, leave to write, having learned
a true order of things.
