85

– brianprince

85.
the hotter it gets.
the older i feel.
eighty degrees.
80 years old.

81. another year. fahrenheit heightens. another step toward
immobilization.

82. dry skin. cracking loam. becoming less of a man. alone.
abrasion.

83. can’t breathe. can’t see. what goals left unachieved, too old to
conquer.

84. hospice. clausterphobic tunnel. in my own capsule. melting
thermometer.

85. sun bursting. son coming. blinding. the
light.

“the five-year forecast is not so cool, over to you adrienne.”

“thanks chris. hello, i’m adrienne bennett and up next
we’ll take a look into your next life, live at 6.”

and the credits pass on the screen.
