A Longshoreman's Mentality - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

Unionist, the man in his fifties and near by sixty
loose heart, loose oneself, loose one's way
and finally loose his weight.
He walks lop-eared, lopsided
but very loquacious and try to maintain his Lordship.
Running at a lost he always dreams of lotteries.
Still a lover in a lounge.
With his lounge suit wanders in parks
in lonely evenings.
A book of loose-leaf memories in hand
and the loner who is mending
the patches of life.

    Like a black and white photograph of revealing clarity, this word study is honest, geniune
    and heartfelt. I love the last line.. Praise for the courage that created it.

    Warm regards,
