concerned thoughts

what runs thru‘ your mind

when riding on a noisy bus

shaking along an uneven road

which is badly neglected

at the outskirts of the city?

foremost thoughts

influenced by themes

originating from the news or

the moaning monologues of

one’s spouse

perhaps from complaints from

an elderly man

who was once a good friend

but then all people he’d talked to

have become good friends

the poet calls it: the need of

participation in the life of others

the urge of curiosity and the

extraction of info that leaves

the stranger turning to a friend

completely naked in his personality


the poet analyzed the situation

for years

knowing his friend

he’s still there for him and he asks:

who will be caring for me

when I’m of my friend’s age?

concerned thoughts at an advancing

old age.
