Miz Quickly’s Coup d’œil Owl

Coup d’œil

there’s silver in my hair,
the real me melted away
in a coup d’œil

and just like that,
another day went badly.

my youth astray, away
with a wink and a grin
until it was all too late.

    • Funny thing, I had a dream a few nights ago that I coloured my hair dark brown, and everyone was going Ohoooo and Aaaah, and when I woke up, I was the same old grey and washed out person I’ve been for the past decade. LOL!
