when i’m fifty – Quixotic Mama

since i’ve turned
fifty
i’ve gotten a leech
for the first
time
ever
while wading in a cool pool
of water
since i’ve turned
fifty
i’ve gotten stung
by a wasp
for the first
time
ever
in the face even….
but
neither were
nearly
as scary as
i imagined
all these years
huh…
i wonder what
other
firsts
wait for me in
this second half
of my
century.
