Day 219 – Peppermint Tea And Dry Elbows

Peppermint tea
for the rest of my life-
some things I know for sure,
for sure,

and probably always dry elbows-
what I shall be, shall be.

We talk of malleability but
if I don’t color my hair
it’ll turn grey anyway

and what does that mean?

When I come out on the
other side of knowledge
I’ll have different shoes
and may prefer chamomile then

but probably always dry elbows;
what I shall be, shall be.

I will not speak the same way
when I am older with silver hair
and my elbows may grow soft

but peppermint tea
for the rest of my life-
what I shall be, shall be.
