My (Future) Mid Life Crisis.

I feel old,

especially in the dark hours

when once I could go all night

talking to you, dreaming

of a time when my life was more

than just a scribble in a notepad.

My wife

sometimes says, with a smile

of course,

that I am a child,

in that case I cannot


to have my mid life crisis

at 89.
