(but we are not degenerates)

we were the hipsters,
just past boomers, just pre- “me”
now we’ve become
the degeneration generation
(but we are not degenerates)
(we mostly aren’t degenerates)
bodies collapsing
things stopping ticking
we’re down for the count
& we’re taking a licking
older isn’t everything
it’s cracked up to be
how we lose
in small degrees
bone marrow
and bone density
how we lose
in mild stages
memory
as our self ages
how we lose
in leaps and bounds
affinity
for certain sounds
ability
to make our rounds or
cohesive, cognitative thinking
or is it just
that we’ve been drinking?
(but we are not degenerates)
(we mostly aren’t degenerates)

cheers

  1. Can I comment on everything here? Some made me laugh, some made me cry, some made me feel deja vu (and then I’d see the date and say oh that’s why!) Really nice to see you still writing.
