Colony


Most residents
are permanent,
others temporary,
getting away
only for weekends,
never really
arriving at all,
thinking there's no
future here.
Many more come
for just part
of the year.

Some, like us,
cannot go back, 
have stopped pretending 
to be young,
having now found
just the right place
to disappear.
