Upon Seeing an Older Post

The Poet From Beyond

She quotes Nietzsche as he were her brother
with no irony speaking through her voice;
she’s not posted for years - fifteen or other
just an echo from the past gone by choice.

Her profile shows her to be seventeen
not posted in fifteen years, so now at least
she’s thirty-two; perhaps with her own teen
or forging career or, please, not deceased.

Ephemeral thoughts placed in print
last so much longer than we ever could
show the hours and anxieties she spent
already grown so old from girlhood.
