"Accordian Lines"

this isn't abt Dick Contino
or that Spanish lady
so popular in my youth
this is actually abt
the opposite of youth

on Facebook
I saw an ad
showing a face
& what happens
as it ages

I never knew
those creases
beside the lips
had a name

"accordian lines"

lovely to know
the face in my mirror
is musical

so when I smile
at myself
I hear my whole life
in a song
