A Wrinkle in Time

in the corner,

where the top lip turns into the bottom lip,

is a fine crease

that reveals the laughter

and devastation

of life already lived–

it is not red and tough

like the scar of a healed incision,

but gentle and strange–

and sometimes concealed

by

flattering lighting.

And although it is elusive

it is there to stay–

a faint reminder of the years

resting in lost

memories.
