Still Standing


Driving on 54 east

Ancient, weathered barn

sighted ahead

unpainted, falling apart

still standing

But how


Younger barn just behind it

fancy, new, well-painted


That’s how

Old barn still proving its worth

Relationships between

youthful and mature

create charges of unseen

yet life-preserving power
