Along With Youth

Rating: 3.0
A porcupine skin,
Stiff with bad tanning,

Stuffed horned owl

Sooted with dust.
Piles of old magazines,
Drawers of boy's letters
And the line of love

odd the things and the memories we collect as we journey on through life- it makes you wonder why some things stick in your mind.... perhaps because these things are personal metaphors for something else- -take that stuffed owl for instance... is it really a reminder of a stuffy souled woman who looks out upon the world with jaundiced eyes, always perceiving faults, prejudiced widow watching everybody's life and picking it apart...
