Through the Looking Glass,
netskyIam

Am I old
 1
Father Lewis
 2
at fifty-two
 3
if reflections belie my age?
 4
 
 
"Do you henna
 5
your hair?
 6
Nip-tuck
 7
anywhere?"
 8
 
 
I do not
 9
but liars may swear
 10
 
 
I am old.
 11
Father Lewis
 12
at fifty-two
 13
though my demeanor is near to the child's....
 14
 
 
"Do you read
 15
Harry Potter  
 16
or colour a book?"
 17
 
 
I do not    
 18
and I'm too old  
 19
to hook
 20
 
 
I am young
 21
Father Lewis
 22
at fifty-two
 23
though the body and mind will apart....
 24
 
 
"Do you favour
 25
a tonic  
 26
or any drug, then?"
 27
 
 
I do
 28
as may pass through your pen
 29
 
 
"I do
 30
as to pass    
 31
through your pen"
 32
