Empty Backyard

Who will feed my birds when I am gone,
My hands no longer able to spread the seed,
My ears forever heedless to their chat,
When they stir my backyard back to life
in the evening twilight?

Okay, by "bicycle express". But that was how I saw myself, galloping along the St Lawrence, a watchful eye out for the Yankees yonder across the mighty river.

Only when you are an elderly homosexual between 77 and 97 do you realize that all around you has become cold, lonely, and empty. You may still be able to manage financially, but you need help to do almost everything, including driving. Your closer friends are dead or live far away and it is not easy to make new ones. People usually treat us with respect and consideration, but even the best consider us from a distance, no involvement, no connection. We try to live in our own house, in our own terms and ways, but also start to admit that we may have to move to an Assisted Living facility.
