    Default Meeting Dave and Steve at the One World Café (CTG)

    Meeting Dave and Steve at the One World Café

    Three poets, survivors from the Sixties, meet for coffee and more.
    Earlier, on my sixty-fourth birthday, an Ethiopian Evangelist tries
    to save my mortal soul -- he offers to murmur a prayer for it.


    ADVERTISING




    The retired mailman, the ex-prison worker, and the still-slaving
    editor (me) discuss the economy, how saps these days can't afford
    to entirely retire: it's each man or woman for him or -- er -- herself!

    I grunt down the path with a bulging garbage bag.
    A young female student offers to help. Doesn't she know
    that I regularly struggle up and down the three flights

    of our Baltimore walk-up apartment house?
    A boy becomes an adult, becomes an elderly man.
    Order me a drink -- make it a double. Boats against the current.

    Thank you Paul I am now sixty-four
    reality has bit me, I know the score
    inside my head I'm as young as before
    I'm still living the dream

    It may be now an effort to open the door
    but what's out there to see?
    There is little new about this old world
    that hasn't already happened to me

    sure it takes me a while to pee
    a dribble more than a pour
    will you you still save me
    can you still see me
    now I'm sixty-four?
