my ass is not smaller

but nor am I anywhere near that

to being taller

thank God

I suppose I'm no stupider than I

ever was before

and at least unlike Jon

I, myself do not snore

keeping others (namely myself)

awake  until all hours of the night

yet I find it is with him that I

most like to fight

over the television par say and or

the brains or there the lack of in

our dog Maggie

or how I've found my breasts to have

grown just a little more saggy

how depressing I know

yet not so very strange


that my once so one dimensional life

has been so lovingly rearranged

to quite an ideal plane of enchantment

and love

and how this bliss I fully concede..........
