Taking to the Road Late in Life

You can be
the only one left,
everyone else from
a strange new age could
not give a shit
because you don't make
any difference to them.

You can swallow that
be civil and act relentlessly
on your own behalf,
bring logic to bear.

When near people
pry their way out
in order to be far,
you can feel yourself
dropping like a stone,
trying to remember their
contract with you so you can
remind them. The futile words come
but they will be disputed.
