In Years Time

Updated: Mar 17, 2021





In years time

I’ve often thought

I’ll be like the man next door


alone

not lonely

with books and films


rarely out

but daily checkups

before

daily bottles


and a quick hello

to the young one

next door.


life

without a walking stick

I should cherish most


before I stumble around

naturally

from age


and the stumble

fatally - proven,

I think anyway...


the smell came first

then fly

after fly


and a moment’s realisation next light

his windows

covered with those pests


and the front door

open

for few whole days.


He lay there


the sight of fallen legs

all grey and blue

truly enough


decay signed the air.


here (next door)

another one vanished


I never got his name
