Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday (to me)

The sun that shone and opened up today

reminds me of cold fate’s futurity.

I see her many suns have had their sway

as now my skin sags low at eighty-three.

My birthday card now comes from stranger’s hands

as those who loved me flown some suns before

as day revolves to night and time’s demands

now seek to make my candles eighty-four.

Still, happiness is active flickering:

the sun that peeps through blinds in early morn

and all the bright lights on my cake I proudly sing

before the murky dark of eighty-five is born.

Oh, happy to survive this human fate

than travel through strange worlds andcropped-colorado-19731-e1444166494509darker gate.
