Sterling Haynes: I Don't Do Old

there are things to do,
lilies to grow.
stella d 'ore's blooms
are my galaxy.
iris' blue ... fill
my eyes with
i don't do old

i do global warming
with Suzuki, Schindler.
and Al Gore's concern
with climates
in crisis.
my affinity is with
the arctic- ice, melt, water,
polar bears
drowning -
i don't do old.

god's creativity,
and ideas light
my spirit.
art, literature
can fill me
with awe.
life is sweet,
never, i will
never age out,
i don't do old.

kindness spins
my web,
altruism, a.i.d.s, h.i.v.,
world poverty
are my bonds ...
entanglements of
laughter are the gossamer
threads that
tie my connections together ...
i won't do old
