Darling, Relax. Micro-film inspired by Beard and Lady Inn. Part of my April Artist in Residence!
By Jamie Sims Coakley
I haven’t bled four months.
My hair is turning gray.
Hips and stomach rounding with age.
Lamenting as I am the fading of my youth.
And I am called to this place
Much older than I am
as she parades before me
a multitude of women much older than I am
Listening as she whispers gently
“Darling, relax. The best is yet to come.”
