You Can'T Hide It All - Poem by Tom J. Mariani

The hair can be dyed
Textured and cut
The face can be made up
The rest nipped and tucked

However worn dry slightly
Cracked heels of feet stricking
Out of the back of
Fashionable sling- back sandals

Do not lie

    So much to be said about fashions
    back in the day. Keep writing, Tom!
