Frodo Retires

Frodo Retires

Frodo Retires (2008)

[Click on the image above to see the view with binoculars.]


In the Shire
now somewhat worse for wear
Wise Sam hastening to marry Rosie
blots out all talk

of a Phoenix sequel.
Frodo sells his hobbit hole and pawns
a gold ring for a hospice bed
in Rove Country.

Frodo Retires

No more dragon's teeth
To plant for invincible armies
Or magic beans for a stalk
Into the giant's gothic lair
Or a golden harp whose melody
Enraptures Rapunzel's hair.

Retirement sucking on buttons
Thinking them stones, cooled
And stained by threads of ages
Our grandmothers once wove
Blue-blooded as bullet holes
Emptied of stars missing heaven.

What encomium's euphoric enough
To bedazzle the binary abacus
Into a trinity that evaporates helium
Gasping for air on Bald Mountain
Where elderly are abandoned in
Waves of goodbye and goodbye and goodbye.

[Disposable Poem January 2, 2008]
