What I’m learning about women aging
is we don’t do it alone –
everything, from being able to gather dust
lines alongside us, trinkets, and trophies
defiant on a cherry shelf,
saved from the fate
of the thrift shop.
We think when someone passes,
this time they’ll look twice,
ask what we knew before now,
where we discovered the truth. Beauty.
But mostly we see each other,
silver and heavy in our limited number,
tarnishing into unrecognizable.
Just things atop meaningful things.
Waiting to be remembered.
