Your slow trek to the dinner table

assisted by a cane

and a daughter

lest you crash to bits

brittle bones and old hearing

lag behind the rest

conversation three beats ahead

jumping in that double-dutch

deemed almost impossible

thin-strawed drinks take the place

making the journey to the car

even

longer

every

step

reminding

you

how

close

you

are

to

dust
