Not To Last

I survived the 60’s,

can I ask the same of you…

 

With soul in tact, my body wracked,

and conscience split in two

 

My parents now have I become,

these days of future past

 

With bloodshot eyes and memory owned

—by that decade not to last

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: July, 2019)
