written years ago,
by a friend,
"jenny is the kind of woman"
followed by some truths, some extrapolations,
this year, still a mom
because that never goes away no matter how old you are,
not sure if I can call myself an artist, or a poet,
just an amateur who likes to write and tries to play the flute,
I prefer ice cream to gelato now
and my townie goes only short distances.
relevance or insightfullness might be a stretch
I can still sit in a corner and stay quiet
I have learned to only speak
when I want to hear a response.
