Not to Grow Old

I don’t want to grow old, at least
In my kink and my all being.
I’ve crossed fifty, so what?
I colour my hair black carefully, and regularly
Clean-shave every morning
Control my diet to prevent fat
I like to look young, though my
Thin hair exposing a naughty spot on my head
And a dark foul mark below each eye
So what? I feel young and cent present young
The secret is that –
My business is with the young – mainly between 18 and 25
It’s wonderful to enjoy the company of these bubbling youths
It’s wonderful to talk to them, to listen to them
It’s wonderful to teach them and be taught by them
It’s wonderful to dance with them, to sing with them
It’s wonderful to get lost with them to some
Nature’s bounty beyond Dhaka’s poisonous air
- Jaffflong, Cox’s Bazar, St Martin's, Sajek and so on -
It is really wonderful to stay with them to feel like them
Because they are YOUNG and BEAUTIFUL.
