WE IMAGINE THE FUTURE

“I’m gonna play for
The Bruins or the Rangers.”
“First, let’s learn to skate.”

“I’m thinking about
Becoming a novelist.”
“It … does … take … talent.”

BUT THINGS HAPPEN

“Would the following
Please turn in your equipment:
(Yes, that includes YOU).”

“Just read your essay.
Boring!  I gave it a C,
Which is generous!”

AND WE CHANGE

“It looks like an M,
Or … maybe … a … W?
How ’bout a hint, Doc!”

“Yea, the Lord giveth …”
Amen! Fat is unhealthy!”
“I said LORD, not LARD!”

Six pills at seven.
Or is it seven at six?
Math!  Never my strength.

(OR MAYBE WE DON’T)

Sorting old pictures.
Boy, was I super-cute then.
Still am, come to think!

AND THINGS CHANGE

What are these wrap songs?
About gifts or coats or scarves?
I‘m completely lost.

I went last year to
Another class reunion.
My word!  They’re so old!

How kids talk today!
Mercy sakes, where did they learn
Such fucking language?

STILL, WE WARILY ADJUST

A steep flight of stairs.
My climb-up conditioner
(Or fall-down downfall)

“Ned, this is Mary.”
Well, actually, I’m Marge”
“Right … Ted, this is Meg.”

Crosswords keep me sharp.
Three across: “Swiss mountain chain.”
Aha! It’s “Alpo!”

Exercise is good.
I’ll try a half-marathon.
Four blocks and back … right?
