To Look Younger
For the price of a bag of oranges
I’ll be an ass for my id
look ten years younger
the wizard says
just follow the yellow brick road
for a trial run.

In the stillness,
Note: I read this morning about these face creams containing ascorbic acid (vitamin C–the “fountain of youth”) and hyaluronic acid touted by a famous physician and was tempted to order up a “free trial.” Just the price of postage. I refrained and ate an orange instead. Because I know what the real “key ingredient” is. But still, who doesn’t want to look eternally young?

Ah! The proverbial Fountain of Youth. At my age, I have to laugh, Sandra. The wrinkles don’t lie, do they?
