Memories of Before
Today she looked older.
A little more tired than before.
It’s only been three or four months.
Long enough I suppose to confuse
with memories of the early years,
back when the mirrors didn’t lie.
One of my sketches of “J” from the session with her this morning. Too many lines. Have been sketching “J” a half dozen times each year for over ten years now. My sketches today were acting like lying mirrors.
