Am I any older my dear, tell me I cannot tell can you tell me, are you any older, my dear tell me if you can tell, can you tell? Can you tell if we have aged from the inside out or the outside in or is it just on the outside only on the outside. I think we should keep it outside. Tell me that we can keep it outside my dear, tell me. * First published in Free Verse Revolution, Issue I: Hebe (the fountain of youth)
