The Simple Truth

Winter Ground Cover

Winter Ground Cover

The Simple Truth

Papery thin skin

cellulite lumpy legs

miles of veins

pop up expand

gravity sagging eyes

puffy and narrow

strained from sight

style twisted toes

calloused soles

added weight

hefty irrelevance

titanium hip

slight limp

precarious balance

layered sadness

multiple deaths

cruel memories

refusing to fade

more vivid

avalanche of time

in front—the very

finite future.
