I Confess My Unsettledness

I am older than Dr. King
not older than he would 
have been but than he 
was or ever got to be

How is it, then, he seems
so much older than me?

I think it must be the 
wisdom in those eyes
and the jam-packed life
filled with centuries
more than most folk
get or have or do
in just one time round

I confess there is an
unsettledness in this
older but not wiser than
state of being
