 70TH BIRTHDAY POEM

70 years old feeling like a samurai
With a dull bladed sword singing
Into the blade of night

Somewhere beyond the horizon
Sailors buried at sea
Rise in ghostly procession

Skeletons sharing their secrets
With withered old men
Lined-up like bowling pins
Measuring them limb to limb like
A tailor sizing you up
For a perfect fit
