Another little verse published

The latest issue of HAIGHT ASHBURY LITERARY JOURNAL includes what I suppose would be called an "occasional poem," written for Laura Atkinson's 50th birthday. It is ironic that it is published now that she is 75! I have sent it to her with apologies for being 25 years late.


After forty (and I assume, fifty)
a swimmer against the sea of gravity,
a sail against the wind of time,
a child on a skateboard,
jubilation follows hymn,
and a new spirit-monkey climbs
about in the bones' old jungle-gym.
