Carrying the years

Posted: April 15, 2014 in default

At http://dversepoets.com/this-is-us/ tonight we are taking the unusual work of Phyllis Galembo and crafting our interpretation in words.

carrying the years

The weight of years
captured in this moment
of stoop and sticks.
Frayed life worn like
some badge ..
no
make that badges.
Mop heads clinging to joints
speaking as each stiff step is made.
Entropy outwardly worn for all to see
And yet
and yet
that sideways glance forbids
any murmur of sympathy. Though
outwardly the gossamer swirling
round your head is web-like
That look
That look
whispers there is still a life to be had.
