People Watching

sol#SOL 18 Day 13

Youth is a gift of nature, but age is a work of art. ~ Stanislaw Jerzy Lec

I saw a woman much older than me

wearing pleather pants as tight as can be.

Her feet were tilted in stiletto boots.

Her face and botox were in cahoots.

 

Her hair was bleached; her skin was tan.

She was walking with a much younger man.

Everyone can dress as they like it’s true.

especially if you want others staring at you.

 

Her very sheer top had me shaking my head.

What more can I say?  It all has been said.

You might think I write from a place of jealousy,

But whatever happened to aging gracefully?
