Mirror Of A Masterpiece - Poem by Dorsey Baker

A face crumbling from its
Tower of beauty
And naked bones
In their becoming
More than decades-
Eyes sinking an awful
Sight to behold

Suit brought and
And soggy socks-
Human nature as its model
The body rebukes its weakness-
And attempts to hide its pain
Climbing its rugged hills
