Images of Faces

Images of faces are clinging
To the walls of the museum
The walls created to contain the life
That whizzes and whirs past him
Like a merry-go-round
That would have delighted a child
That can only petrify an adult

Then comes the half-hungry dream
The red-faced children promising love
While all the ancient men push and pull
Expecting answers to tuck into their
Long grey beards
While the antique women heave
Holding their beads to their chest
The promise of love remains
