watching faces remember – January 28

1.18.2016 [watching faces remember]

watching faces

remember

 

youth

and heroes

and yearnings

 

a tweak at the

corner of a

mouth

sharpening

of an eye,

the grin

 

something fresh

and clean

of ideals

still held

after,

especially after

 

years of maybe,

of disappointments

and distillations

and disillusions

 

but also of hopes

fulfilled and

touched

caressed and

received

 

the flaring up

of recognitions

that we heard it

right

and it wasn’t all

a mask

 

the tellings of our

youth

spoke truth.
