I may not fit the definition 

But I’ve decided

This is mid life. 

It would be a miracle

if I lived to twice my current age.


It may not be a crisis. 

I’m not wearing red pants and having affairs–

red never suited me.

But it looks like 

a What Now?


In the coin toss of smelling the roses

and doing what is “right,”

I always lose.
