The hourglass sand slows

like the last kernels

desperate in the bag of microwave

 

popcorn. Do you start something

new when the end is near?

Nana took up acrylics at 64,

and woman I read about,

 

became an expert

waterskier at 85. Why

believe that

 

life ends at 40 and

there is no need

to start something new

 

when half you life –

statistically –

still waits for you?

 

This second nine

filled with wisdom

and life under parr.

 

With 30 minutes

til closing time

run through the museum,

 

order a five-course meal,

take a class.

Live.
