Sixty-one is time for something new;
In loneliness there can be liberation.
Xeroxing past practices won't do;
The point is finding cause for jubilation,
Yearning for the salience of relation.

One cannot spend one's longing in review,
Nor turn the page without the odd sensation,
Elusive though it be, of some lost you.
