i know my upper arms will grow
flabby it's true
of all the women in my family
i know that the purple views
like dead fish in Seine
will dot my legs one day
and my hands will wither while
my hair turns grayish white I know that
one day my teeth will move when
my lips smile
and a flutter of hair will appear
below my nose I hope
my skin doesn't change to those blotchy
i want my menses to be undifficult
i'd very much prefer staying firm and slim
to grow old like a vintage wine fermenting
in old wooden vats with style
i'd like to be exquisite I think
i will look forward to grandchildren
and my flowers all my knickknacks in their places
and that quiet of the bombs not falling on Cambodia
settling over my sagging breasts
i hope my shoulder finds a head that needs nestling
and my feet find a footstool after a good soaking
with Epsom salts
i hope I die
by the life I tried
