Poem

When time swirls
it records the birth and death of each breath
stoic distress that one day I will wake up old
edged ever closer to the cusp of expiry.

When time swirls
it exposes the greys, bulges and sags, the cruelty of gravity
edging me ever closer to the cusp of expiry
these swirls marked only by mundane shifts and shuffles

The greys, the bulges, the sags steadily exposed
triggering stoic distress that one day I will wake up old
yet only mundane shifts and shuffles show
when time swirls
