there were potions

unguents salves pills

exercises to bring her eyes

back up to 20 20

& idle lying in bed

watching this one morning

I could not sympathise

c’mon baby you know

these things are from quacks

nothing stops mother time

father gravity

while no friend of mine

has to do his work

or the world won’t turn around

let’s just agree to grow old

disgraceful but naturally

she argued for a while

but all I heard under the words

is she would not grow old

with me
