Frozen In Time 2010

         Frozen In Time

 The tendency,

The wish to be

The shiny sun of twenty-one

That looked out from

A malleable place

Inside that face

Of innocence and gullibility;

Mute kingdom

Of the ignorant.

One sees the now-jowls,

Howls,

And asks oneself

Would I prefer to be

Time frozen, young forever?

Never!

I know all about it.

I’m re-routed;

More alive than Arlene

Twenty smooth-faced Nover ever

Was.

Circling Round Wrinkles; Circling Round Nature; Pure Nakedness;

Arlene Corwin
