Not yet old’

poetry


in front of the mirror
keen sight, for a maneuver
to pluck her white hairs

more blacks, edgy whites
strand by strand she pulls
her worrisome reflection.

  1. I use to shave my grays, but then my hairline started receding, so I gave up.

    So yeah, this resonates with me, her pulling at her reflection. Great poem.
