ODE TO AQN ELDERETTE
by Carol Ann Spiller Paresky
(Marblehead, MA )
Living a life of almost/Knowing full well enough,/and everything?Getting up and staying up/Wiser than King Saul/Smarter than Einstein/Humbler than the Seven/Dwarfs/ROLLED INTO AN AMALGAM/OF PRAISE AND/PUNISHMENT Knowing full well enough,/And everything/Rolling the dice/PLAYING AT CHANCE/Sweet and not so docile/Damning the torpedoes/Full speed ahead!/Smelling the win/Caught in the wind/Reaching the apex/Grabbing/The night/Watching Waving Wooing/Every blessing/Every minute/"Hey,look at me -" (To every He who - Springs a leak in my Head)
