4 October 2017, Lake Forest Park, in front of Albertsons (a poem)

This came into my head as I was driving to Third Place Commons; I wrote it down after I had parked in front of Albertsons (where I bought an everything bagel)…

The day
The day will come
The day will come when I look
The day will come when I look at youth
The day will come when I look at youth and feel
The day will come when I look at youth and feel nothing
because I am dead
