Twisted Out of Shape – Thursday 1st August 2019

Twisted Out of Shape

she said
at our age
that is why we are twisted out of shape
she sprayed
body spray on her legs
she keeps fit
because she wants to look her best
he moved
to another part of the room
where the sun sought out
the lines of his frame
shadows danced so much
they said, we must do it again
she said
at our age
that is why we are twisted out of shape
she laughed
and the lines of her face
gave up the secrets of her age
but the story was told
and there was no need to turn the page
he moved
to stand up
and speak about a common motion
age is not enchanted
or changed with any potion
