Flaking Years (by Joe DiMino)

Love the way stars
just seem
to stay up there
pretty as a picture
night after night
I still wonder

no chipping
nor peeling that
I can tell
you scientists…

needing no Gorilla Glue
nor stabilizer
like postcards
and photos

yet to dry to my eyes and heart
going on 67 flaking years
of my own
