Like and Unlike (Free verse) by Christof
How like an old man. Midstride, dead, He topples His face as mottled As a butterfly's wing. Be distracted as the pavements sing For the rain Plays the slatted drain Like a xylophone. Consider the skin tone Now brittle as chalk, The stamp of his walk From his muscles erased Like a lyric unphrased. Note the dumb head Note the wedding ring As the unknown dully meets the unknown.
