It is a small shadow –
blur –
a damp festering on wall
space –
a blooming concern as
I age –
a reminder to myself to
avoid that loneliness
[as long I
can] –
that sucking of air as if a
drowning fish now landed –
our later years
[undefined] we
will be unseen by others –
a gone opportunity & chances
of more long extant
that so-uneven path past you]
