getting back to me
OCTOGENARIAN

prominent front teeth
 1
baseball cap askew
 2
a ball of sun behind him-
 3
my boyhood self
 4
morphing into the sky
 5
angel tanned
 6
with wings made of a muddy shirt
 7
 
 
and then there's me
 8
with my cigarette fingers
 9
I whistle for his dog
 10
to enjoy the bubblegum lollipop
 11
still stuck on his face
 12
 
 
looking at the dog I wonder
 13
could it lick away my adulthood too?
 14
is it's tongue wild and silly enough?
