Coming Off A Downer

Coming Off A Downer

Wandering momentarily myopic through
Myriad minuscule misapprehensions
of self……………………a sort of
nabobbing naked among neuroses
long thought dead,
I am reminded how fragile,
how fragmented,
even the strongest are,
(how fleeting the courage of ego)
and how much depends on
the outreach of others.

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.
