GET THE WORD, “NO,” OUT FIRST





      One thing about getting a little older
       you don’t feel a need to impress anyone
        not some boss
         not some 1/2 insane woman who hates
      you with a black and abiding hate
       then in the morning
        she loves you again

       there’s no need for this stuff anymore
       no need to bestir yourself
        no need to play the game

        no need to cut my hair
         or wash my clothes
         no need for a flashy car
           or other trappings of success

       No need for this
        no need for that
         I’f someone gives me advice
         or tells me what I “should”
      be doing… I don’t bark 
       or bite or whine or moan…

       I just hang up the phone.
