Second November Dream


I woke Susan at our old home.
She sprang up as young and
Energetic as when I first
Knew her – beautiful too –
No touch of any age to come.
She said, bouncing about
To a woman she had no need

Of me, meaning I thought
That I, fully as old as I am,
Couldn’t keep up; then this
Woman, someone I recognized
From TV told Susan she
Would take me if Susan were
Serious, knowing, she added

With sorrow that she never
Would – never could let me,
But Susan wasn’t listening
Whisking herself away
On one of her missions,
And I remained, dreading
What would happen next.
