a statement upon the journey:

as you get older
there’s more
to
write about.

it’s like
opening a
trunkful of
goodies

and
what was once
painful
becomes
ridiculous

and
if this becomes
salvagable
as art

o.k.

if not

still
o.k.

I mean
how much
can you
expect to
get?

you’re just like
everybody
else:

just getting
far enough

seems
plentiful.
