Old man
take a look at your life
Remember the last day you felt water upon your scalp
recall the sham
and your poo
I see into your sweater through a busted seam
Your left shoulder must be cold
the way you face no one
Does your face know the edge of a razor?
The beard waterfalls
pours from your mouth and over your heart
You live a life defined by greys
and its infinite shades
but your skin has colors
Cheeks, so rosy
always embarrassed
perpetually ashamed
You’re alive
You’re not living

  1. old man tie youre shoelace and wash
    your raincaot
    is that your dog over
    he’s barking and i’ve run out of string
    yes a son out of many
    and one good with the axe and the firewood
    out back
    near the outdoor toilet
    by the bench
