dreams leave a residue
filming the back of the eye
metaphysical laminae
viscous accretions build up
forming ominous filters
of aging perceptions
inexplicable fears begin
shaping bleak features
where merely benign
possibilities rise into view
giving midafternoons
cast of midnights that
tremble and shimmer
in suns gone mistaken
for moons yellow gold
as if touched by an errant
alchemy cheapened to
dull tarnished silver

oh here burns a yearning
for fearlessness facing
its future of days
recaptured of confident
keen clear-eyed youth
