Women of a Certain Age

800px-Another_Full_MoonIt comes on like the summer

you had your first period . This small moment when

all of a sudden

you realize you’re a woman, not a girl.

Those sanguine roles of youth are no longer yours

and it’s setting a weight down. Learning to dance

from the balls of your feet up.

Standing barefoot in the moonlight tasting your need

to howl in the back of your throat.


Letting it loose because you don’t give a fuck.
