“I heard the old man’s voice break, 

Stutter once then stop it,

I heard a sentence started confidently,

Halted by the sudden absence of a word,

Stumbled and he sputtered trying to find it back,

Something once so simple gone now,

When he finally gave up told me, “Aw, it’s like hell getting old.”

When you came into the store,

Did you know you’d show me your scars?”
