The Last

the last Tuesday,
the last Wednesday,
the last Thursday,
the last Friday.

Retirement in 4 days.

Unsettling and surreal.

The building didn't look like this when I started.

I didn't look like this when I started either!

I am 64.
I've worked in the same building,
with the same basic cast of characters,
for over 34 years.

I'm not a math wizard
but even I can figure out 
that's OVER half my life!

while I don't mean to fixate 
on my impending change of status,
it's little wonder that
envisioning the shape, structure and feel
of a new reality
is hard.

Not impossible,
not unwelcome,
at this moment,
