One Poem by Daphne Milne

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

Serene with striped eyebrows

This is how I want
to be remembered
endless eyelashes
smooth white flesh
a Barbara Goalen look
elegant and formal
as a Mondrian painting

In youth I had the look
slim hipped  fine boned
sleek as any supermodel
now the baldness
gives away my secret
This tatty death mask
must be my epitaph
