Are you old enough now
to know
you are not young enough now
to know
it all anymore?
Are you still beautiful enough
to know now
that your beauty
is deeper
than your skin?
Are you ready now
to remember?
Or do you just like to begin?
I remember now & again about then
I was just left of pentangle
& you were suddenly pentagon.
Are you young enough to remember then?
Or old enough and forgetful now?
