A Silver Tongue

from by Jamie Collier



She raised her head and asked to he ‘Where do the years go?’
He turns, looks left and up, to the ceiling ‘Where do the years go?’

Crystal eyes that ride
In a porcelain skull
Marble pure and fine
Hides a silver tongue

The tangled black lace
You used to wine and dine
That draped across your sight
And dripped into your mind
All those lives ago

An empty silhouette of endless space and unmeasured time
Cut out from the haze of candlelight and ink
The comforting antiques with romance in the wood
All in but a blink

Of crystal eyes that ride
In a porcelain skull
A river deep and wide
Hides a silver bell
Still and dark below

He raised his head and asked to she ‘Where do the years go?’
She turns looks dead straight through his teeth ‘Where do the years go?’
