      Poetry Submission: Clocks click by Gutman Locks

      Clocks click

           by G. Locks

      Clocks click
      Time slides
      Brains hide
      Memory hushes
      Skin dries
      Hair falls
      Mirrors appall
      Stride smalls
      Face wrinkles
      Teeth blink
      Height ducks
      Ambitions taper
      Activities sag
      Bones narrow
      Muscles droop
      Voice creaks
      Knees squeak
      Body bends
      Appetite dims
      Doctors pat
      Sex was
      Sleep’s paltry
      And Heaven calls,
      Yet, now’s
      the best years of ‘em all.
      Thank G-d
