57.

Young adulthood can rip out some tail feathers and

Force you in to circles.

Don’t discount lessons learned from

Loitering in doorways listening as other mothers 

Puckered their lips and brushed on mascara 

Perched on rickety sinks and

Tales told eating blackberries in thickets of bloodthirsty mosquitos.

You can take something useful from every rotten fruit.
