Age - Poem by Mike Finley

The young must hunt for poignancy
the bleared eyes of the whore
the stickiness of sidewalk blood

We who know have learned to shrug,
the broom we take to each day's dust
and deposit on the mountain out back

    Nice submission Mike! ' the broom we take to each day's dust' a favored line, and almost felt a little... witchy. Enjoyed. Hope your time away was refreshing and full of many insightful treasures :)
