Here I Stand

by Wendy Freborg

Two inches shorter than I used to be,
hair graying
vision fading,
hearing failing, 
memory eroding,
social circle shrinking,
balance precarious.
Master of the universe circa 1970,
now stumbling on the staircase,
bumbling at the keyboard
and flummoxed by remote controls.
