Things at the gym get Heavy

A physical trainer at the gym

once took me aside

& began asking me philosophical questions

like, How much could I dead lift?’

I don’t know, friend, I said

 “I guess, we’ll have to continue this conversation at a gym in Heaven.”

& then in a twinkling

I was gone

— Never to return —

(tho’ I would continue paying monthly fees for another fourteen years)
