blend

From a first

possibly

uninterested glance

all old people look the same

it is only

as you get closer

you begin to find

their stories are all different

from another time

tune

mainly you hear

the lack of noise

that young’uns have

& that special

not giving a toss

their peculiar lack of care

from having lived

through

revolutions

higher times

lean years

fat years

& how these beasts

look much the same

with the long lens of history

their avoidance now

becomes

hospitals

noises in the night

scares in official letters

invasive tests

holding unhappy results

& all we see

is the neutral clothing

tan

beige

oatmeal

caramel

taupe

worn

possibly in the hope

blend in with the others

to not be an easy target

as the grim reaper

comes closer
