Mr Dark and I

entry picture

Struggling up hills challenges my age

but poses no problem

for my insubstantial companion.


HE can manage it lying down!

No aching joints or defiant lungs

in his fleshless,boneless form.


There again,HE would find it easy-

that voiceless negative of me

since it is I who am obliged

to keep him in tow.


Despite the fact that at present

he weighs nothing

and has no means of conversing


he can still tell me

using his stooping disembobied body language

how incapable we are both becoming


and how very much harder

over the approaching years it will become

for us both to keep meeting in this way

This reads like a diary entry to me, and is brilliant.

Its like a man keeping a secret but intending that it be known after he has departed.

Really captivating.
