The Nadir

watching boxes fall
off a trailer at sixty
life slips away ...
stuff accumulated
photos, three rings
that fine bottle of pinot
the lamp, her gift

broken glass litter
on an asphalt freeway
memory of a once tried life ...
thyme for a fresh start
a moderate existence
facing wicked curve balls
in a land of fastballs and sliders

(c) 2007 lemme howdt
