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

Together


Fading, failing, gone

Intertwined flaked skin


Forces of realism and cynicism


A slowly departed heartbeat

A lumpy throat

Forever cracked
