Getting old…

Getting old is not for sissies,
So they say,
and they,
are right.

Unlike J. Alfred, peaches
are not a problem
but peppers

Green and hot,
onions raw,
Salami, cheese
all of these

Bring me to my
knees, and more,
find my husband

At the store.
Pepto, Maalox,
liquid chalk

All are bought,
and chewed and drunk.
Gagging, gasping,
oh, the pain

As I moan
“Never again”.

Amazing how a good
nights sleep
has me now on
steady feet.

What’s for lunch?
