An abundance of denial,
  your mind turns away
What spirit embraces,
  choice hides and delays

  “The dignity of the old man
  in worn tattered clothes
  Frayed pants covering high
  button shoes—but not toes

  He wanders among us,
  just over the line
  As eyes fail to see,
  what souls hope to find”
An elegance to rival
  your white tie and tails
Where life now stripped free
  of false richness—prevails

(Villanova Pennsylvania: February, 2016)
