I

Matisse,
in his forties,
was years before his peak.
So what’s the rush? I’ve still got loads
of time.

II

Bastard!
that young pipsqueak
doesn’t deserve that car.
I raced Mustangs when he played with
Hot Wheels.

III

Okay,
I’ll lose some weight,
and switch to light beer too.
I’ll show my old lady I’ve still
got it.

IV

Hang on,
maybe there’s a way.
If I could sell this place…
Dammit, what’s the use, who am I
kidding?

V

Ali –
he missed his chance
at gradual decay.
Strange to picture him living to
my age.
