I turn to spirit

because my aging body

cannot taste of flesh

any longer

I wish I could say

I've had my time

and sit in an outdoor cafe

blessing the young'uns trying it on

but as the pleasure of youth

only come once a lifetime

the defeat and surrender of age

also come once in a life

immortal as we have it in us to be

until we disregard these fleeting states we're not free

and all the worse for me

for still loving the sweet treachery

of desire and all the intimations of paradise

a woman's flesh portrays...(said the old romantic

from his own view of embraces and spiraling galaxies)
