still alive
for another birthday
a man with a crooked smile
stares me down
from the mirror

  waking dream …
among strangers in a crowd
I find myself
looking down on my double
his eyes closed beyond sleep

    Orion’s reach ...
no way to evade
the iron cold
his sword testing my mettle
these long winter nights

I would like
my coffin to be
a cocoon
in time, I would emerge
and take to the sky

  Such happiness
merely from recycling half
a box of papers
a few inches closer
to a clean farewell

space J. Zimmerman - USA

    the last
of his hunting buddies
laid to rest …
an old man waits at moonset
for the buck’s white flag
