2228: Inscribed

Elegant – will not be inscribed
or written about me – my view
of time ahead is skewed by an
illness that lies to me with my
waking – it unsettles me in my
sleep – it contains my ageing –
a long wet raincoat – smarting
as if tailored for my frame – In
my wardrobe are clothes that
now disguise my degradation –
easy to pull on – less loops & a
retreat from tricky laces – I will
not bend or twist as it takes its
grip & shakes in me [tremors’ll
give me up to keen eyes] – In a
decade I may give up my game
of chance – for now I bear it all
