January 1986

 

he has in his possession

a picture

of a young man

strong

arm around an old lady

frail

both are smiling

 

he's looked at this photo often

noting in particular

the young man

his healthy looks

his smile

his…appearance overall

 

passing over the old lady

whose best days are done and gone

with only the casual eye

so frail and feeble

pale and drawn

all over

such a contrast is seen by him

 

another contrast is seen by him

in walls

his need of them

her lack of them

when all is said and done

is he better off than her

he has his health

she has her God
