She Should Have, by pd lyons


she should have fucked him then.

but now? how fast the years lay on him
puffed sagged tortoised
and where did he get those glasses?

she had just started to learn to ride
the yoga was coming on nice
and her own years?

seemed instead to drift
southerly across a steady Indian summer

    That second stanza-I stare it in the face at least once a day. And the last stanza, poignant and enviable.

        Not sure what you mean. Surely you are read by many. You have a great gift. It’s my pleasure to read you and share you with others.
