Poem

Vows in Old Age

 

I swear

 

I will never

 

talk about

my health problems. torture

me

I'll stay

mum

how boring & demoralizing

to hear from anyone

who isn't Susie Timmons

 

my cat doesn't complain

my husband doesn't complain (I married a suitable man)

my neck wobbles—that's OK!

I can't stay awake (no one can tell)

O Susie, tell me your troubles!
