contribute to
some sort of
retirement plan,
relying on the gardener
to make the most of
its investments

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: retirement

it’s an inexact

it’s an inexact
science, how we will spend our
whole lives migrating

in a circle to survive, like
wildebeest, chasing the rain

maybe for a couple

maybe for a couple
of months, it’ll hurt.
maybe for a couple
more, i’ll still
notice. after
that, the body
promises relief
and release – life
contemplates
death in bite-sized
servings, small
addicting
doses
to propel life
towards death

i am working on it

i am working on it
is not as active as it
sounds or looks.
i am not down
to the residuals
here, no full-on
tugging from
bygone experiences,
but a daily non-
choosing – meat
so delicious, no
one has to
put up a fight
