your face is a sad poem
JKWeb

crows leave footprints
 1
by your eyes,
 2
tears have dried here
 3
 
 
lines form from
 4
a smile, or a wince
 5
a blemish, a flaw
 6
fifty years of alcohol
 7
 
 
arterial frown lines,
 8
blood has trickled here
 9
 
 
the tilted mouth,
 10
the crooked teeth
 11
and the nose that knows
 12
not a thing
 13
 
 
of a face
 14
that begins
 15
to sag and strain
 16
 
 
the skin
 17
that burns in the sun
 18
and the desert remains
