The Older I Get

Folder:

.

I had no intentions

of turning into my grandmother.

It happened slowly and I did

not notice.

.

I see breadlines

following the election if 

conservatives win. I envision

more black people taken

from buses so they can not

vote. I listen to the tv

and hope the projections

are not just optimism.

.

I feel the need to go work

outside somewhere

because housework sucks.

Maybe not so Grandmaish

afterall.
