fading fading away

garden center nursery blues

I see them go in in their droves

looking for garden plants

dash & a splash coffee & a pee

then home in time for tea

small thin-skinned persons

gender neutral

pale shorts paler shirts

stick legs arms poking out

cotton topped hair

beige on beige

some kind of fawn

fading fading away

sloping off softly in sepia sunsets

from homes marked dunrovin

dunteachin dunrobbin

wisteria view acer place

homeacres iznerz

fresh no more enhanced with equipment

teeth from dentists

specs on chains in case they be forgot

hidden hearing helpers

but still their faces register: what now?

whist drives bridge & coffee mornings

to take up time

no longer the sex

intrigues affairs office politix row home gossip

all gone for the god of beige

some kind of fawn

fading fading away

sloping off softly in sepia sunsets

disappearing before our eyes
