MY INSIDE VOICE SLIPPED OUTSIDE

January 13th, 2011

WOW-Really? to me!

I actually said out loud, “you haven’t really lived until you’ve dated someone half your age.”

One gal said, “how old are you anyway?” And then followed up with, “what do you have in common to talk about?”

End of conversation. Wink. Wink.

EVAPORATE 1-22-2010

EVAPORATE   1-22-2010

They all evaporated.

Reassuring me of the permanence before me

Were my thoughts revoked?

Breaking words in two

That stumbled out of my mouth

Unexpectedly

Was I not careful enough

to move out of the way of oncoming traffic?

Fate has moved

They all evaporated
