Reference Hebrews 13:8

Granite jut shiftless

and height, width, breadth will cover

centuries and more;

time’s passage, rotations, change

mankind’s echoes, amnesia.

New Covenant

Old promises fall
from hands clinging ivy touch,
silence at betray
and dawn rises to heart change;
sealed brand of bloods devotion.

(Hebrews 10:16, NIV-This is the covenant I will make with them
after that time, says the Lord.
I will put my laws in their hearts,
and I will write them on their minds.”)


Pinched are the pale lips,
cheerful tone, a non-duchenne
smile in return-
seed of the dig sunk to heart.
Percolates, inner man filled.

( I don’t know who knows what terms, but a non-duchenne smile is a fake, social smile. It involves only the mouth and cheeks. A duchenne smile is the one categorized as a genuine smile, which involves both cheeks and crows feet around the eyes.)
