Do not bethink me invalid
Just for my graying beard. For I have fought
A thousand wars, and seen a million years.
Ah, thou vexeth me.
I long to see thee smile. Come, stand next
To me; and we’ll gaze upon the earth awhile.
It was with a certain sense of weightlessness that I found
myself driving to our local box superstore.
Bring rivers to my eyes. Please, forgive
My imposition. I’ll not ask thee anymore.
Oh, you goose. God himself could not oppress me.
I gave no whimpered pleas.
To the future
Has this place changed me? No one for miles. No televisions. No computers. Or phones.
