Salford 17th March 2018


Another day goes by

Another crease forms on the face

A new laughter line joins by the eye

Age they say is a concept

You can be young – even after fifty,

Experts say (at the age of thirty)

I smile at that assertion

as i look at next doors pug – wrinkly and ruffled

Old age hasn’t bothered him – he still chases around the garden
