Language Lesson

  I spend most of my time alone or with
my wife; she sits in the kitchen watching soaps.

And I didn't know how lonely I was
before I ended up in a hospital
and shared a ward with six, like me, elderly
men who had lived unhealthy
and now had to pay the piper.

Modest, I said nothing, but they sort of dragged
me into their conversation.
It was great fun.
I spoke Portuguese without worrying about grammar
and we laughed a lot.

I'm home now, sitting and writing these few words,
the TV is on low and my wife sits in the kitchen
and I miss the old men.
