NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 23 year old mind trapped in an 83 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I prefer gambling on life than in casinos.

I gaze up from writing and encounter a belly.

In my childhood, it was, “brother, can you spare a dime.” So, what is it today, a buck?

Some open door with look of trepidation.

The only “after life” is death.

As a child I was taught to walk slowly in strange neighborhoods.

I sometimes think God works as a security guard at the city dump.

Women enter store still clutching keys in hand.

As yesterday becomes today so today becomes tomorrow.

At age 83, “next year” is a pleasant dream.

Death is the stranger never to meet.

Who I am today was who I was at age 5.
