age

How old am I? My age is…

A leap of time
Between Death and
Knowing;  

Curving
Round my soul,
It streaks out to the
Stars, becoming light,

It fuels
Me on or in or
Back or round,  

Depending
On how I look at it or
Listen in.

Mrs Jenkins, Blue Zone, Ward E.

She shakes her hand, no
Visitors to lift her spoon
To wet her wise mouth.

Men on top

How to behave

With men?

Men you work with.

Do you work with

Them or for them?

Senior men,

Take note!

Juniors are not

Less

Than you

Only

Less

Than themselves if

That is how

You treat them.

Let them be

You and they

Will be better

Than you or

They thought possible.

Why? Because without

A  lane to call their own,

Sprinters collide and fall.
