panama canal survivor

crazy ass

prickly ole fart

ninety eight years old

vital

independent

active

in neighborhood bar

bet you I can drink more than you

a wet behind the ear youngster

he won

fell out

taken to hospital

raised hell

don’t want to die here

kicked out the hospital due to rebel rousing

want to die in my own house

did just that

with a smile on his face

literally

List Poem: Writer 5

publication short story shelved

took it to war

wrote during active deployment

wrote amidst atrocities

wrote to save his soul

the book was born in battle

did his own editing

no changes allowed

at liberation of Dachau

maddened by war

work came first

DO NOT DISTURB

disconnect with lovers abrupt

writing was his permanent Mistress
