April 5, poem 5

For today’s prompt, write a discovery poem. The narrator could discover an object, a person, an animal, a dishonorable deed, or any number of things. Poets can focus on the discovery, examine the aftermath, or even just mention it in passing.

Discovering age

being dirty dishwater blond affords one
special attention and powerful amenities
deemed down to earth, real and unaltered

people irrationally trust unaltered woman

beauty fades with time and even dirty blonds
find themselves highlighting their assets
playing up the beauty in sun kissed hair

people battle against unwarranted privilege

age means better, stronger mirrors that
magnify ten times normal sight and reveals
the light has been flickering on silver, not gold
