poetry

Jubilado

Retired, you’ve retired!
Bliss and rapture,
More time to spend together.”

Together?
We worked together
For years…
Same building, different roles
Days at work together,
But apart
Hardly ever speaking or meeting

Our working partnership

Jubilado! Retired!
Together for days on end
Stifled, confined together.

Questions, questions
Instructions
Babe, I need you!
Come here!
Just do this…
I need you

At work we were
INDEPENDENT

Now he depends on me
Too often
Using my mind instead of his

Claustrophobia of the mind

He cares deeply, painfully
Aware of everything
Missing nothing
In control of the day to day

Demanding,
Relentlessly dependant
Jubilado!
