Question by : A poem on a new beginning or just another end C/C please?
Set out once more into the world
worn granite steps slicked with froze fog
the same steps every morning
ruts worn into by 45 years of routine
Same cafe
same coffee
cream no sugar
served by a angry spouse
admonishing her spouse in Korean
sounds of the cafe changed
but not you
“Danke” you sigh
and continue out the door
Two buses one transfer
and three stops on the subway
you arrive
same platform
past the broken escalator
up to the grey light
diffused through lead clouds
sturdy bench awaits
you sit down and watch
with each swing of the ball
your life crumble
and you wonder
when it ends
what now?

Thank you for any comments
First “spouse” should have been “server”
Mea Culpa

    What now?

    …a life changing event
    we can’t sit..to make that happen
    and as this generation defies our old standard
    the next may make it happen…

    Those icy steps sound dangerous. Perhaps a way to spice things up a bit, eh?

  4. libby says:

    I am now thoroughly down. The routine of life is but a repetition of useless nothingness. Ja der Herr…..niedergeschlagen!

    I see this man, I’ve seen this life different and yet the same. It is scene in black and white. The sun will cast it’s rays on something shiny and the world will turn in a different direction. Great Poem.

    Every morning, for 45 years, there was a chance for change. That’s 16425 (give or take a leap year here and there) missed chances. Complacency is a dastardly fellow.
