Let me get this straight

by Kerry Hammerton

Before we go any further,
before you fall in love,
before I fall in love,
before we fall,
get hitched, attached,

or whatever they are calling it
these days,

let’s talk about this right now,
let’s get this straight,

I may be young and pliant now
but those wise woman years
are just around the corner:

hot flushes
drying vagina
disappearing libido.

I may be younger than your ex-wife
(what was the reason she left you again?)
but soon I will be the same age

are you sure this is what you want
to sign up for?
are you sure you can handle the pace?
