Leaving Numbers Seven Five 2010

              Leaving Numbers Seven Five

I’m not supposed

To give it meaning;

Not supposed

To say what’s waiting

Round the corner,

Give or take twenty-five years.

No peer alludes to it; dear

Friends don’t mention it.

Alone in a neurosis

That the rest don’t share?

There is no sentiment there,

(though I once said that I’ll miss myself.)

The thought is hard to grasp –

It doesn’t want to feel –

Not real

For the moment.
