Seen Scars

I have a huge research paper on the burner this weekend; here’s a melancholy rag to tide you over until I break loose.


Seen Scars

After 26 years,
the knees creak
but this is scarcely audible.
Two lines on the brow are visible,
but most of all,
a sadness in the eyes
is perceptible.
We all see through it:
The scarring of the years
resides in the iris.
