Memory of the Aged

  Memory of the Aged

  Blurring mist creating a transcendent skull,
  Gradually dissipating into thin air by glimmer of the sun,
  Aged plucked toothed corn-row
  Of horny gum smile, broadening,
  Grim lips fall flat,
  To blab like ignorant spoil infants,
  Greetings dug up and hung in the shoulder of space,
  Ensnared walking sticks tucked near ancient monument
  armchairs,
  While ghosts apparitions lounge in breezy atmosphere.
