saw a post by nemo to the effect of POST something (not me, anyone, everyone), if not new, something.
Girls sipping wine, dark sky inhaling
Light, the doors to the deck open
So we can hear the crashing surf.
A beach house, the Gulf of Mexico.
Then, Peggy, Rebecca’s roommate
From college, just divorced, visiting…
Pulls out a picture of her
Daughter, Lauren, to share. I relax,
Am empty, and the girl is lovely.
I may seem to wander, but say
A Zen master recognized success
As a teacher only if his charge
Surpassed him. Congratulations,
For though you are still a handsome
Woman, this daughter you love
Is beautiful, and has left you behind.
