these are the left over years
life reduced, the womb dry.
If I were a vegetable I would be limp
but I am stiffening, from the fingers in
and my opinions would have to be cut out.
What once was attraction
is just a wrapper now.
But this time can be a bargain, too.
It's good not to have sold out
When life is cheap you can try things
you'd never have been brave enough to, before
Why stick to recipes? Invent yourself.
