Old Age

by Persis M. Karim

Which comes first?
The slow decline
of the body,
the sag of tissue
and skin
or the dull memory
that eats away
at sureness
just below
the bone?

    Persis, I like your poem very much. Thanks for sharing.

    tomorrow creeps in
    day by day …
    the joints
    of my memory
    age and ache
