Currajah (news & notes)

Famous Reporter # 32
 

 

 

                    KATE WATERHOUSE

                                 Keep breathing

 

Peter Casserly
World War 1 veteran
106 not out
 
hair in thin tight
curls of sweat
where his hat sits
 
and his strawberry veined ears
on each lobe
four or five errant hairs
 
and the reporter asks:
what’s his secret
for long life?
 
and there’s a pause then
the room quiet
time
arrested
 
Keep on breathing
I suppose
says Casserly.
