Downhill Racers

We are describing a common everyday object held in hand for Sarah Southwest. Sarah’s the barkeep in the Dverse Tavern. This is a constant battle for me:

World’s away are fading,
then coming into view.
degrading, depixelating,
then born again anew.
A downhill ski begins
The contours of my nose
Oily skin has done me in
Unless I’m in repose

    This prompt brings out the creativity and fun in many of us. I’ve worn glasses since I was 5 years old; only take them off to sleep. I just forget I’m wearing them. Good on you for choosing them.

    Oh my goodness, this was entertaining. My reading glasses broke today at work, but I carefully balanced them upon my nose with only one temple, so this was a timely poem for me…hehehe.
