"Heaven Can Wait" (by Joe DiMino)

There is nothing
one can do well
that one
does not live—
even failures
to be failures
must be heart-felt;
felt to the bone
like a cold chill
and then
backward push
of the storm
one leans into
and against
willful defiance
our true power—
So I sit…
contemplating stars
far off, a
journey of leisure
an old man’s reward;
no rush to get anywhere
an old man’s gate
and knowledge—
I think, even death
shall have to wait
till I am good and ready

and heaven
better prepared:)
