You could have a big dipper   

use by date/insert name here by Jane Ayres





milk-eyed

this glass-woman

a brittle whisper

a little bird

shrinking

shedding

tongue-feathers


youthful bodies conceal their workings

but as we advance in years

veins & bones try to

break free

more visible each day

through veil-thin skin

the silent creep

reminding us

mortality is


cinnamon-flavoured
