#2,476 That elderly couple

That elderly couple – him
still tall on his stick – with
his frailties – she aids him
between chairs [a hazard
at each table – as it is] – a
duality from café & lattes
on to shop [or gatherings
for God – what do elderly
couples do all day?] – Our
plans are in tatters for an
auld age that matters – in
sheltered homes we were
not expecting our ending
[but circumstance’ll twist
wrinkled narratives] – My
took path is led unguided
