Rookie (1977 November 18 / NW South Africa)

Ageless


A precious twinset shell souvenir
Has unfolded a cast
of letters from the alphabet ranking
To lay down a perfect whisper
on the way to say‘I thank you’
For you ceased a sister
from an endless mirror!
...that had looked like
a snail with a huge sinister trunk
sprawling to moving closer!
And for you my dear,
being grateful is entirely ageless!

Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
