All that remains: here in my afterlife as a 'mainstream' blogger, with what little I know.

Musings On Stubble
If I ever shave
         the shadowed
silver-blond blades
         (piercing
upside-down collaborators)
I'll be serious
         or bored.
But, only in theory will I remove
         cropped
castoffs that cling
to the bowl each night.
I cannot wash away memory
of the unseen
         reminders
to the wife
         delusion
I'm going blind
growing old.



I wanted to put parentheses around "delusion" but thought it would be too much, overkill.
