old guard

old guard

where are
the old guard now?
going through
backyards
cutting down
cliffs
girlie magazines
glossing in
torchlight
an awesome
fight near the
classrooms
long after
home-time
the old guard
whose faces were
like playing the
same hand again
and again in
last card
where are the
old guard?
what was
should always
have been.

    Haha, I can only hope that’s the case, good Sir! The ‘old guard’ now, for sure, substantially ‘older’!
