The days go by unnoticed:

wake, feed the dog, make coffee,

drive to work, move the kids

through some bit of literacy,

drive home, cook dinner, eat,

read, watch TV, then sleep

restlessly through the night.


Then suddenly I find I am old,

not that I’m surprised;

it’s been happening for years.
