Wrinkles This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By , New City, NY
Around his smirk,
His wrinkles muster
The rim of his eyes,
The proof of luster

Each stir of emotion,
Each flutter, each shake,
Wrinkles dance,
Across his crowded face

Descry his grin
Uncover the fervor
A wrinkle, a memory,
A suit of armor

A furrowed feature
Is a bond to the past,
An epitome of a story,
At long last

I love this poem! It reminds me so much of my Grandfather.
