Snack #2...

Beneath ivory exterior

She knows she's still there

Lies spill from the mirror

In a petulant stare


In youth’s out-stretched verdure

It is easy to dance

Earth’s ballroom a meadow

Of infinite chance


She hears the austerity

Of fall ‘neath her feet

The fruit of maturity

Is bittersweet


Girl becomes woman

At least in her skin

Will she be the dancer

Or grief’s mannequin?
