Year Book

Flipping through the pages of my contemporaries
monochrome images looking forward
bullet proof stallions and giggling filles all rearing to go
sniffing the wind, hoofing the dirt
heeding the call of hormones
From the ensuing dust and noise some never emerged
forever chasing youthful  passions
with implants and lifts, stretches,
piercing’s, punctures, dangling shineies, tattooed hineies
amortized crotch rockets and other clear coated automotive wonders
Showy puffed up plumage shouting look at us, ain’t we fine
Black and white was so quaint a time, laid back, sublime
Collected best wishes scribbled
through the spaces of faces i once knew
Gone older, gone grayer, gone chasing or just gone

Searching high and low no matter where i go it always seems the same: shades of grey. Or, was that gray?
