nostalgia

There’s a bit of nostalgia going around

amongst surfers hard-bent with age, sharing a table,

reflecting on who of them was generally found,

surfwise,

to be the most able.

Imagining themselves dominant in half-remembered sessions,

rather than succumbing to old age’s unwelcome, solitary depressions.

Telling each other of remarkable waves

of blinding speed and bellowing concaves.

But those days are done, the memories only jest

Though,

despite all that

We had it at its best.
