100 Words- May 25, 2015

I am not a particularly effeminate child, but neither am I an overtly masculine one. I would rather read than play contact, or any other, sport. Occasionally I play baseball, but I am so bad at it that Fat Eddie, who is half as wide as he is tall and moves at the speed of an eternity, is chosen before me. When chosen, I am always assigned so far out in right field I have to take cabs in and out.

I feel lost in a world I do not yet understand; It’s the mid-fifties- reliable guides are not available.

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.
