Subject: RE: Mudcat Poetry Corner
i am wearing the skin
of my seventy fifth year
one day slips into the next
without fanfare or fuss
no bells or whistles
who will be left to tell my story
who will shout my last hurrah
my days are wearing thin like threads
of my best old shirt
faded and bare
never too old to discard
and still good enough to wear
