Daily missive for Friday the 26th of April.~Age is a less than cryptic puzzler~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Friday the 26th of April.
Age is a less than cryptic puzzler

Oft times
There is a floundering
Cryptic and clueless
A dampening
Drowning in silence
Grasping for the safety
Of things known
Once understood
Quicker than a finger snap
Further now to reach
As vital pieces
Slip between the lines
The gap grown bigger
As worn out gears
With fewer teeth
Sluggish reuptake
Struggle for an instant rewind
Immediate access
To current information
Is denied
Data storage hidden in overstuffed
Boxes full of cotton balls
With additional polystyrene
Cognition mothballed
Beneath
A skin tight membrane
Weighed down
On all sides
With incidentals
Muting the intensity
Of external stimulation
Age old problems
Are no less grave
Than they ever were
It is in the retrieval
Upon which solutions founder
The tip of a tongue
A little less sharp
Allowing vital words
To simply slip away
Until too late
The penny dropped
Is returned
When you are alone
With nobody left
To spend it with.
