APLOMB

Referential moment read
into text coincidences of
life, correspondence amid
inside with outside other
faces alien to inner self
which lacks seduction of
multiple lives displayed
played with aplomb, poise
imperturbable assurance
that later will crack as old
age reveals the wrinkles
disturbs the bowl of fruit
vase of flowers arranged
as the world looks away
talents fade, un-noticed.
