    Right now
    If he could be
    Anywhere in the world
    He would be at home

    Unhooked from IV’s
    Watching TV waiting on
    Soup and bread
    Instead of his sponge bath
    And jello
    to keep his temperature down
    he’d be 10 years younger
    before they found that clogged
    artery blocking blood flow

    Somewhere in Egypt admiring the
    Architecture of Cairo
    Or on his boat ride inside the banks
    Of the amazon
    Just anywhere beyond the shadows of
    Death down the hallway

    If he could be anywhere
    He’d be in his mothers garden
    Plucking ripe green tomato’s
    To fry for dinner
    Two-steppin’ to some ol’ Curtis Mayfield
    Stealin’ away in the middle of the night
    With the bright’ skin princess he would claim
    As his wife
    Any place where he would escape fear
    If he could be anywhere but here.

    Made me remember some elderly souls in the hospital, wishing they could turn back the hands of time. This really hit me, poet.
