Life Is-Transition (V2)

By Michael Lee Johnson


Transition, is song, passages.

291.5 pounds, age 67, 6’4′, gross as a pig waiting for

butcher’s cut.

Aging chews at my back, my knee joints, chisels, slivers

in dampness.

Legs are corn stalks burning; twist fibers, bending, late

October, Halloween night.

Good news, 67, lost 38.9 pounds this year, rocking gently

shifting my pain away.

I am no longer a beagle pup, an English cocker spaniel

chasing the bitches around,

no longer a champion bike rider, yo-yo champion, nor

Hula Hooper dancer or swinger.

Now I expand my morning stiffness with stretch rubber

bands, legs lifted high then down.

Wild mustard, wild black rice and the Mediterranean diet

have taken over my youthful dining experiences.

I no longer have nightmares about senior discounts, or

Meals on Wheels,

part-time bus driving jobs, or aerobics.

When spices are in season, I out live my postponements

to my grave.

Screech owl, I am an old buck, baby hoot on a comeback,

dancing my ass off.

Transition, shedding old loose snakeskin.

Still listening to those old hits, like Jesse Colter, Waylon Jennings,

“Storms Never Last.”

Transition is song passages.
