to become immortal, and then die

it’s amazing —
the crinkles from a lifetime
of smiling, the wrinkles from
years of frowning and sighing,
the sandpaper appearance
of the aged face, sometimes
still smooth to the touch; the
way they slowly lift themselves
out of their chairs, joints creak-
ing bones wobbling fingers trem-
bling —
they move as if they have all
the time in the world when really,
time is already running out.
