old_couples_in_love_are_so_cute_640_01Love after middle-age
it is said
can be ungainly
at best
no place to disguise or hide
extra folds
we are bodies desperately in need
of hiding behind clothes
like the unwashed memories
of youth seek showy fornication
we find pleasure
in subtle fantasy
when we really have to
unwrap for real
it’s like eating too much sugar
and wishing you hadn’t
reaching for more
oh go on
indulge yourself
you’re free now
tear up your ticket
leave behind
the rules
