Ageing with No Intention to Stop

Ageing with No Intention to Stop

So be it. I’m a receptacle,
an odd and curious thing
that you might see vanish
behind your quick glance.
Better suited, you’d say,
to shadows and odd monkish
corners. But I’ll not be
propped into heavy carved
furniture nor turned toward
some mind-faded interest.
I am silent surprise. I see
it in your involuntary
expression and wary surprise.

 

for Poetic Asides “Free”. Inspired by
The Old Curiosity Shop, Charles Dickens
