Poem On Poetry


You know when it is lost:
but when you have it
it is just there
like a hand or an eye

How soon young women
paint over the bloom of youth
with another’s style.
Unseen beneath,
the face fades.

So I used your gloss,
powdered the cracks,
till one day
looking in the mirror
I was no longer there.
