Forever Young

source
Her face
preserved perfection
expression frozen in amber
lines erased
with all evidence of living
the Fountain of Youth through a
needle.

Yuck. We watched an episode of "Bones" that had Morgan Fairchild in it. She used to be so pretty and so expressive. Now the only thing that moves is her eyes. She looked like she was wearing a porcelain mask of herself.
