will distort this momentβ€”

(an oasis
in the desert of memory)

the simple
wonder of the instant diminished

as gemstones
depreciated by display upon

a gold band.

Focus fades
in inching instants

(a shutter
slowly closing over a lens)

and we
imperceptibly surrender

to these evanescing essences of

youth and reminiscence.
