Don’t Look Now

*

Don’t look now

Looking in the mirror back then

Brillecreamed hair all slicked back

A wave  of North Shore envy

Curving around my head

Set in gelled stone sculptured image

Somehow between then and now

The tide went out the wave flattened

Receding into a sandy shining beach

Reflecting in the sunlight

Don’t look now or you will gasp

Rip Van Winkle awakened in the mirror

Shocked at the textured changes

Baked on the sands of time

Returning to the crockadillian

Prehistoric images emerge

Preset for eons of hibernation

Eras to come bursting from our shell

Spiritual butterfly light of a million colors
