Creeping Up

before reading writing
first you open the file
then words appear in it

what you have thought
takes the form of words
arranged in even lines

nine stanzas on decline
taking different forms
be ready for surprises

gradually creeping up
and suddenly revealed
years having elapsed

you know you're old
yet uttterly yourself
productive having fun

meanwhile older still
laugh at your limits
continue making art

eat healthy exercise
whatever your thing
keep right on doing

decline is underway
denial useless time
leaving you behind

read Pessoa √Čnard
Andric Stein write
everything you can
