When I Am 88

Inspiration for those of us on our way to 88

I will have a love affair
That will leave me
On a windless day.

I will drown in Puccini,
Mozart, Verdi…
Tidal waves roaring
Inside of me.

I will feel the brush strokes
Of Van Gogh,
Clawing, bleeding
My inner flesh.

I will be Shakespeare
Vibrant, on stage,
Rivers rushing, splashing
Over moss and stone.

I will become soft,
Sensuous, wet
Against your skin,
Silk against steel.

When I am 88,
I will still be woman,
