Treasure Island

Gregory Huyette


At 65


Here I am almost 65.

In some ways only half alive.

Last week is just a blur;

A lot of memories never were.

Most movements have slowed down,

Though urinary tract has rebound.

My colon is much more rude;

No greasy, spicy… tasty food.

As I gaze in the mirror, I sadly see

A strange, old man squinting back at me.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
