In Way of Remembering
Struggle with reality
of being old and vulnerable.
Have long talks
with my soul and together we recall
messy stories from a past
when means to exist were lean
of all magic and courage.
Until we remember mantra
found in bumper sticker
glued to dashboard of faltering Pontiac.
Success is the best revenge.

Process Notes: Biographical. Still have a few people around who want me to believe I am not okay. The bumper sticker was a gift from a friend who understood, and it remained on the dashboard of that old blue Pontiac until I drove it into the ground. But then replaced it with a much newer one, paid for in cash that I had earned and saved.
