'Tonight I’m older' by Jim Bennet                print version

each night I come
to conduct the course
bring my notes
sit read them
in the empty classroom
as I listen to my thoughts
echo off the walls

each night I take the bus
find my way
to a brown curled
poster of a holiday
wonder about
the smiles on the beach
wonder why
I am older than Elvis
ever got to be

and each night I stand here
look up to the stars
wonder when
you will come
to rescue me

I saw Elvis on stage once
cloak spread
waiting to fly
to be lifted up by
the wind from five thousand
hands clapping

now each night
I am a little older than Elvis
ever go to be

© 2005 Jim Bennet
