.

My scars were earned

my wrinkles were sun etched

and are now permanent.

.

My gray hair is like rust,

no amount of scraping

will restore the shine,

the boldness of blackness,

or the ability to be

wind-tossed.

.

I ignore the weeds

growing around my sore

ankles. I type slower

to avoid the need

for an oil change.

.

My joints rattle

when I dance

and yes indeed,

I still dance.
