#2,502 A Position

Mike Bell/ August 19, 2022/ www.mikebellpoems.com/ 0 comments

My position is that ageing
is not a loss of youth – it is
gaining more possibilities
[a benefit in kind] – We sit
& see an arrogance swell –
tits & cocks excluded – we
command loftier grounds
& can spy every weakness
laid out behind us – errors
nudge a recalling [but not
regret] – cruel hinterlands
are thick [like middle-age
spreads] & we will retreat
at clumsier speeds from a
fat battle field of juveniles
& their crabby bravado – a
position is held on ageing
