AT SIXTY

I still have my hair
at sixty. That's not my doing,
of course, not my
conscious doing, anyway.

None the less, it's
a point of pride.

Lost some weight lately --
not that I was ever fat,
exactly, but now I can
wear the same waist size

I did in high school.
A little more proud

of that one, certainly.
Too bad I don't have
the body-builder muscles
anymore. But I can

get them back, you know.
It's not too late.

A new piece. Nothing very ambitious, just a quickie.
