I blink

inside my house today
with photos of twenty-five year old me
staring back at me

body and face thin
no extra chin
strong and lean

trained killing machine
shooting down range
disassembling my M16

I blink

ten years have gone
body changed
brain rearranged

to stop cancer
to live longer
is always the answer

when raising family
watch them grow
another day comes instantly

I blink

then hold my eyes shut
dreaming of glowing images
cast on cave walls

animals hunted
drawn and painted
thousands of years ago

did our genes draw
did our DNA solve
the mysteries of eternity

As we blink
