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.
