64-14

Darkness

18,250 days
438,000 hours
26,280,000 minutes
1,576,800,000 seconds

at the half-century signpost
as glimmers of youth fade
like half-remembered dreams
awash in aches, this sluggish body
caught in the dichotomy of
hard-fought wisdom
of the human condition
plying battles, seeking
further truths of the one, me
who inhabits this plodding mass of bone and flesh
