Dear Old(er) Me,

I hope you have retired

That your children all are well

Did you somehow discover

What caused that foul smell

Please tell me you’ve downsized

Migrating toward heat– at best

Summered: Scotland France Italy

Fall— Munich’s Oktoberfest

Your imaginary British boyfriend—

How did that unfurl

Did you give up in the end

Standards changing old girl?

I hope you’ve joined AARP

For senior discount days

Card flashing shopping sprees

Spending more to save

Well now you’re in your final lap

This is not the time to rest

Dig deep— find motivation

These years should be your best
