Patina


I like the love
found hanging
in second-hand
stores, under
a patina built up
over years long ago, 
etched with ecstasy, 
not just tried on
and peeled off
as in our age,
squeezed between 
everything else
we do poorly,
but still remembered
by some so very well,
from a time
before we were born.
