Age-erasing Strategy .... [PERSONAL GROOMING; very SHORT; silly; sort of true; personal]


I usually don't cut my long nostril hairs,
nor that hair which protrudes..from my ears,
but I DO shave the bristles from my nose's tip;
I believe that shaves from my life.....ten years!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

PH member Francis Lynch, in his poem 'Happy Birthday... Right', mentioned various little body parts which are sometimes related to getting older. his poem inspired this poem, which is true, except that my hair cutting isn't what chops ten years off of my appearance. it's my 'clean living' and friendships on PH. believe that? ? bri ;)

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling'ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
