Wasted on the young

July 23, 2012

late afternoon
the girls come, lounging easy
in their youth – flexing
arms and hips,
insolently.

pliant heads dip ardent
over iPhones, intent
on elsewhere.

glib, unaware
of potential skin kink
and muscle-tone treachery –

it lurks round the corner
when youth hoves into focus
for the first time

– A Retrospective.

  4. Hey I missed this one somehow… great take on ageing… we should celebrate it in some ways.. hehe.. incisive, acerbic… amusing.

  5. Thanks, Arron.. can always rely on you 🙂

    And Luke.. you did.. and are you celebrating? It’s a thorny issue I think.. especially given the prevailing (western) cultural rush to deny the actual effects of ageing.

  6. Alas, so true…
