Annual physical

Around The Sun

Palpate a path across this bleak landscape

while I regale you once again with tall

tales from my latest journey, the one that

began right here when I set off for Parts

Unknown with a brash wave, shirt tails flapping

free in honor of the little white lies  

I swapped for some of your rather woolly

Prognostications, the prodigal fresh 

from another trip around the sun, sly

old morning cuss, second story man wont

to heave a leg over my sill every

morning for a little looksee, hoary

witness to my slow and steady loss of

altitude, chasing the darkness with his

radiant flares to light the way; the chute

you packed open, drop zone bathed in sunset.
