Poem: An age

Updated: May 31, 2021

She questioned the erratic weather

Drumming, shining, blowing

Gales and rays throughout time

Speeding, slipping, leaving

He watched the roasted nuts,

Ageing, hardened, dry

Bitterness of life


Fading, failing, gone

Intertwined flaked skin

Forces of realism and cynicism

A slowly departed heartbeat

A lumpy throat

Forever cracked
