"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

UPDATE

EVIL  ASSISTANT     UPDATE*

She’s here again today  but do my eyes

deceive me?   A ratty dishabille now her

most prominent feature  I have time travelled

 

She must be 33

 

Hair a matted bob  not clean   Skin pasty white

Hasn’t purchased Chanel lipstick  since 2023

Worn camel coat   Her mother such  high hopes

 

Evil’s meanness no match for her 2nd husband’s

He kept 2 families  like many a French President   says she

 

I sit one table over   now 73

 

And while: Most poets dry up at 50 (Mark Strand)

I remain  somewhat moist & mostly  chipper
