If she can do it, I can do it
if I buy it, try it, I’ll be it.
Like the model on the advert:
young and lithe. No anxiety.
I might be the one in two,
the one in four, or the one in ten,
or I might live on horrendously,
to a grand old, sightless immobility.
Tomorrow I could read a book,
forsake my nook,
become a warrior and look
at life from a different epoch.
