Last Look at Innocence

PAD Challenge day 23: For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Last (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.

I've learned not to sweat the 'small stuff'
like to-do lists
and wrinkles
for who can sway
the rubric of
 time's elemental twinkles

...and who can thwart the calm cavort
of moment-metered farthing
and who can stay the hand of day?
Not you nor I, my darling

Janet Martin
