Faster every year

Shopping on Wednesdays is slower. It is senior citizen day. It seems I am recognized as a fellow traveler. This is a good thing.

The woman
In the motorized cart
Told me
My birthday is in two days.
I will be 79.
It’s hard to grow old
But you must know this too.

I said
I do
But I also know it’s important
To claim every year.
She said
They go so fast now.

I said
Faster every year.
