Darling, Relax

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

Watching closely

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.”
