I’ve Never Been Worthy


Wow. We’re old, aren’t we? When did this occur?

How do you feel about the way time passes?

I barely know which way is up anymore.

I look at myself in the mirror and see

the Emperor from Star Wars, but with more bags

under my eyes. At least I don’t have jaundice

or scurvy or gout … or the Zika Virus.

I have no idea. I have no reason

rhyme or meter. I’m floating through space and time

hoping for a chance encounter with someone

I’ll most likely never meet. I don’t know what

brought on this change. We’re almost 38 now,

but even if we were nearing 70…

hell, we could be 92 and you would still

be capable of rendering me speechless

and reducing my legs to shaking jello.

Yours is the prettiest face in the world, and…
