Timely Present


My mirror had a birthday
and I refused to party.
Wrinkles she shed upon my brow
are disingenuous at best
and I refused to party.
Tossed a blackened rag
across her face,
set the lights on dim
watched the breath of nature
condense upon the walls.
I need a bigger chunk of
chocolate each and every day
to keep my wishbone activated
and thoughts of aging held at bay.

I love the opening line, talk a bout a grabber! A nice take on the movements of a body aging.

"...to keep my wishbone activated

Those words just roll off the tongue and into a visual.
