More poetry (omitted inadvertently)

Oops! Somehow I overlooked these three when I posted this morning.

First, two that resonate with those closer to the end of life than the beginning:

The Reunion, by Jack Ridl. “We’re still dumb kids, just gray and tame.”

The City, Berobed in Blue, by Eleanor Lerman. “Yikes!” “Look out!”

Then one that somehow feels like it’s an older couple.

Just to Feel Human by James Tate. Why do I say it feels like an older couple? She reads his mind — a sign of long familiarity. The ending is impetuous and uncharacteristic of their lives (unlike newlyweds).

About readerjohn

I am a retired lawyer and an Orthodox Christian, living in a collapsing civilization, the modern West. There are things I'll miss when it's gone. There are others I won't. That it is collapsing is partly due to calculated subversion, summarized by the moniker "deathworks." This blog is now dedicated to exposing and warring against those deathwork - without ceasing to spread a little light.
