a woman of a certain age

 
I'm frequently asked if the woman in the picture is me
the fact is it's Angelina Jolie
I don't know why I chose her for my avatar
perhaps it's because I secretly have a crush on her

the truth is I'm a woman of a certain age
my estrogen is on the slow side now
still menstruating but getting ready to stop

I have a fine little mustache that grows in
that I frequently wax off
but there's one course little hair
who persists on growing
and the strange thing is I like it

I like to run my fingers over its roughness
while I contemplate what to write
it makes me feel fierce
this one little touch son of a bitch

I used to take pride in my beauty once
that was a long time ago
when I was young and not so bright

no, I'm not Angelina Jolie
I'm a woman with one whisker who refuses to die
just like me
