Approaching 70 By John Yamrus

at
this
point in the game,

I guess
I’m supposed to
be writing things like:

“sands at 70”;
“the end is near”;
and “ode to my lost and misspent youth”...

but,
I get the feeling
that I ain’t done yet.

not
by a long shot.

so,
give me
what you got.

I’m
tough.

I
can
take it.

go
ahead.

I
double-dog dare you.
