Warped -- Poetry 2011

blind as brick wall -

since bats aren't blind

plus she hated clichés.

she was better than that

even though her vision was weak.

too much computer time;

too much time using cheap magnifying lenses;

too old to compensate any other way.

her parents had trifocals at her age...

sometimes they stumbled muttering curses

at the ground glass they were bound to.

there was no fear associated with turning

into them, well not them per say but similar

to what they had become toward the end:

wrinkled, droopy features, puffy eyed,

hard of hearing and vision loss... so much

to look forward to as age warped her appearance.
