she speaks

of the cliches

of aging
poetry


and of

      the ways

the wind

has

                                        blown


the pages



            unnaturally

into

the future.

Elegant, elegant
elegant ....
the objective observer....
a river flowing
past that which
is already gone
understanted
understated

Thank you so much, Linda! Lately, I have had a hard time stepping back and seeing my poetry objectively. It is nice to get another opinion.

I like this! I really like what you did with the words- you made it such a visual thing.

Thanks, Andrew. I think, sometimes, the visual aspect of a poem can be as powerful as the literary aspect.
