Retirement

I can move from my armchair to the hammock

or to the lounge chair on the deck

I can lie down on the couch

stretch out in front of the TV

read all day and roll over

stay in bed until noon

or get up at 3AM to have a drink

I can sleep, snore, snooze and dream

all day and all night long

I can answer the phone

if I feel like it

take out the trash or not

go for a swim whenever I’m hot

drive or walk to town

shop and cook or go out to eat

have a beer for lunch or two

shave or grow a beard

watch other people work

talk about the old times

dream about the future

remember not the blather on

and pretend to be still young
