Getting Old by J. K. Durick

I’m getting older. I know it now —
Feel it, live it. I’ve become

That gray and forgettable person
They don’t recognize in family pictures.

They say, who’s that she’s with,
And more often than not
It’s me.

J. K. Durick is a writing teacher at the Community College of Vermont and an online writing tutor. His recent poems have appeared in Social Justice Poetry, Tuck Magazine, Stanzaic Stylings, Synchronized Chaos, and Haikuniverse.
