B. B. Woodall Poems
Age and Rage
When you are truly old, No complaint will matter. Rage about being sick or poor Or misunderstood
3 Spring Haiku
Pill bugs wet with dew as crawling gray domes mirror green turf, salmon sun.
Sonnet: Cat Ownership
You have to love them to sift their latrine, The uric fragrance burning your nose and eyes As you render their special place fresh and clean- One of them watches, impatient, and sighs.

Age and Rage
When you are truly old,
No complaint will matter.
Rage about being sick or poor
Will not be taken seriously.
Anger at human folly
Will be meaningless.
Nothing will be noticed but your age.
While there is still time.
