Wander...sitting still


What women wander?

Not many. All. A few.

Most would, now & then,

& no wonder.

Some, and I'm one,

Wander sitting still.

My small grandmother

Bought from every peddler

Less for the ribbons and lace

Than for their scent

Of sleep where you will,

Walk out when you want, choose

Your bread and your company.

She warned me, "Have nothing to lose"...

...Women wander

As best they can.
