Rearview Mirror

What happened to you my friend

whiskey nights have yellowed your skin

sad days of mirror gazing tempered your ego

hours of wandering around your head

time has a way of that you know

crumpling us like old newspaper

still readable but it’s a cataract life

making our shadows longer

as we stare in the rearview mirror.
