For G.C

for G.C.
…..so fra
gile   so timid
to be tender
we wander
…..alone
afraid to bump
our glass hearts;
would rather dissolve
in velvet indifference
than risk on rainbow/
glorious/sunburst/shat
tering.
So we diminish
chip

……..by chip

…………………by chip.

About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.
