A Life of Luxury 

At six all I wanted was a puppy 

At sixteen I dreamt about autonomy 

from my parents 

Beginning age eighteen I searched 

for a boyfriend 

who would give me chocolate

At twenty two the wish was 

a job worth a champagne toast 

By thirty 

the time to shave both legs 

during the same shower 

without a baby crying 

would have been a blessing

After children the luxury of 

leisure travel was an impossible dream

By forty the goal was 

spousal independence 

This is when I stopped aging

Now true luxury would be

self reliant children

The perfect 

British boyfriend


To work less would give me

time with my puppy
