Which visit will be our final meeting?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Sitting in your sunken sitting-room,

we smoke cigars and sit at ease,

listening to loud music boom:

classical or jazz, both please;

 

air scented by Cuban fumed cloak,

you cough, clear throat of croak.

 

Re-welding years of lost connections:

kitchen-sink dramas once provoked,

absent now your constant corrections:

time-short talk, not tear-choked;

 

we both ask questions more kindly,

soft words now bless both benignly.

 

Shall we read some scripture

from shelved bible rarely read,

or view snaps, poignant pictures;

at Sunday service wine and bread;

 

long silences due to daytime sleeping

– which visit will be our final meeting?
