How Ever

Did we get here,
is that a fair 
quest I (am) on,
put that comma where
the mark would go

punctuate the day with
a walk with a four legged
animal who has your partial
attention while you take
for granted the balance 
you achieved since your 
life as an infant
came to a toddling end

and your adulthood 
stretches out as a story
disconnected from children
and frankly, from life,
to the end you know is coming
in the denial you’ll deny
until the facts become known.
