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.

Unfinished Lyrics for Captain Crow

by fyarlgiles

His ruined ears can hear no truth

His soiled hands can share no warmth

I know his eyes seem soft at times

but they’ll steal what’s good in you

you’re just his fool

you’re just his fool

dance a jig to make him laugh

you’re just his fool

his loyal fool

Good Old Captain Crow

Your pity gets the best of you

that crooked fool you see is you

i know he’s lonesome, lost, and blind

but you can’t bring him back to life

“Captain Crow” from unfinished musical titled A Woman Made Cold 

& Partial Portrait of a Man by Angie Hoover-Hillhouse
