Morning work on the poetry videos (so much for my AM yoga…)

I’d have a hard time narrowing the time frame on this down. I know it’s definitely more recent than 2008, and would guess within the past few years, but I really can’t narrow it down with any certainty.

Tarnish

Tarnished Silver has a story to tell:

Now that I’m faded
will anyone notice
the beauty within?

I never wanted to be a teen romance,
mindless fluff,
a summer of dreaming,
or some tawdry affair.

Rather, may someone pick me up,
lackluster as I am,
and see me for what I was,
and — with a little care —
can become again.
