Old stars

us oldsters
what we’ve got is experience
the heart can only take
so much beating
mandatory
quadruple bypasses
of the head
before receding hairlines
cross the youknowwhat into
expanding baldness
before the halos
we puff up
come back to choke us
and we pave the way for you
grave by grave by grave
