“Bio” …21 February 2017

The last time I saw Albert…
we were carpooling to & from our workplace
claims-taking for the unemployed

I guess I came to know of him quite well
thru our small-talk in the car
He was a learn’d man of many achievements
He was living wild for the love of a young woman
His daughter was appalled at the transformation
And then, as things grew more complex:

Al became critically ill,
and regrettably,
I wasn’t able to visit his bedside
before he drew his last breath
