she keeps bringing it up as an appropriate topic,
not recognizing that she's talking to an "older person"
losing my mind, slightly sagging in places, eyes getting
a bit watery.
she brings up my hair style, my choice of dress,
my lack of style, my need to dress as an "older person",
and then that favorite topic of hers, euthanasia.
she hasn't gotten too far into the details but perhaps
she is developing her ideas on this for the "older people".
I'm sure I'll hear about it and we'll laugh,
perhaps uneasily, I'll look behind myself
and see a young person standing there
it's me.
