Not Getting Any Younger

Pic

We’re
not
getting
any younger,
so
let’s
tackle
the stars
like
one does
on
a first
date
with a Gibbous
moon
glaring
with
her one
eye closed.

And,
if you’ve
forgotten,
let’s
fight
the wind
as
one does
after
two
rounds left
in
a heated
boxing
match. Those
two
rounds
ain’t
shit compared
to
what
I’m
about
to
do with
these hands.

What
I’m
saying
is that
we need
to gravitate,
and
test
the
model that
says
we’re
not
supposed
to
be together.

Let’s
make
do with
time,
and
have way
with
our
bodies
that
seem
to simply
fit
like
two falling
leaves.
