one-line haiku sequence
december 12 1989



at fifty

at fifty there's still so much to shed
so much not to be still about

it's such a risk or is it to believe in women
without thinking we took it with men

oh my name it is something my age it means more
don't ya just love it

to really tell the truth in haiku or haiku sucks
well why not say it i'm fifty at last
