there are already days

there are already days
when my entire
body is
a question mark –
fingers stop
playing, shoulder
blades leak
acid, forearms
cry foul, knees
face a long stretch
of staircase below
with premature

    Nice insights and premonitions, for age will come upon you in fits and sputters, quietly while you slumber, lurking in shadow, it has its own agenda. As a senior I assure you that even as young as you are, you must save for your retirement now, and understand that the gentle apprehension will morph into daily dread, as things atrophy, droop, and drop off. So make your music and love while the juices flow strong and the sap is still high in the trunk.
