A painting and a poem. Old folks shopping. 

Lumbering.
A wounded rhino.
Bent backed stick heavy.
Tottering towards termination.
Taken by Tesco trolley towards the final checkout.

What becomes of the broken hearted?
Alone.
Companion-less.
Worn on the wheel of life.
Devoid now of the man or woman
they never truly loved but miss all the same.
An empty basket.
No honey
No money
It’s not funny.
Life.
