Old bodies

Bodies bake in  kitchen
And in crowding poem.

A poet’s wife bakes too
Skin is fruit, head  sun.

Poet is halo around age
Sprouting silvered hair

To shine a morning sun
With an instant sarcasm.

A comedy misses tooth,
In a gap for  death wind

Like the mountain’s pass
That lets in Hun invaders .
