Ed Ahern- A Poem

Bio: Resumed writing after forty odd years  in foreign intelligence and international sales. Lots of stuff published, around a hundred forty poems and stories and two books.
Art in the Moment was originally published by Encircle.

Art in the Moment
Tweets and blogs and selfies,
cuttings and transplants and mascara:
beloved embalming agents.
This moment is insufficient
to longers for save-my-now
who flash freeze the transient.

Yet no day knows its father
and passion hovers but never abides.
Our essences are painted on water,
and blown away like clouds.
But we take such pains
enshrining images that we no longer are.
