Regrets


Regrets

          "But then again, too few to mention"
           – Paul Anka, 'My Way'

Let us speak, the poet says,
            of desire and death:

Driven over half your life
            by the one,

waiting the remainder
            for the other.

Days when the music was new
             and bright,
before your days of old

             and dim,
remembered, not as they were,
             just how you wished

they could have been
             before
choices.

Regret. Regret? Regrets,
               but then again, too few to mention.
