the inescapable ‘I’ poems

-

I like being an old man, but friend,

I have no intention of being a quiet old man.

I am going describe everything, 

The sun, the moon, the North Star, 

Even boring things like my family, politics,

And the sounds that trains make at night. 

My ‘I’ poems will be like death; 

Inescapable. I feel another coming on me. 

Even as I am just finishing this one.
