    I'm sorry this isn't lyrical poetry but it's the only one I have on the requested subject.  Sometimes imagery is lost to the reader so a brief summation:  youth is self-absorbed but there comes the day for all of us when we find we have been replaced by the next generation of youth.

    slower traffic keep right

    the red carpet girls are gone mad with elegance
    pretty young things with hot tools and leg venom
    movie mouths drenched in max factor and balenciaga

    the uber sexy move their juicy tubes like urban witches while cameras say 'quiero solamente' - i love only one'

    but after the ball
    like the flight of the galileo
    comes bandy legged mr. slyboots
    that gypsy who steals the unholy desire
    the blind curve making red carpet girls undeliverable as addressed
    their veils no longer effective in the valley of apples
    that prism which turns in on itself

    lights, camera...

    sometimes in passing they break through the walls with dance cards empty
    but the bell ringers have come like a village of unicorns
    erudites with angel essentials
    saturn, the maker of old age, has set the agenda
    now the kingdom of the sun is eden after the fall
    sucking the breath of dreams

    the illusion was the delusion which bumped against the sides of life
    misled and misguided
    now facing the moments vanished

    new felines have pounced with unexpected wings
    the balance has shifted to pretty young things with hot tools and leg venom
    juicy tubes drenched in smashbox and wang
