sitting on my hands

the faces of my youth grow old
yet I believe that I remain ageless,
immortal,        and
free from the dance of decay

then the moment comes,
that moment where I see that look in the eye
of a girl I would have once
too easily taken to bed
the very same look
I would have once
given her grandmother

before I shook my head
and walked away
