Excuse me while I smooth out my skirt
It's been some time since I've had so many wrinkles in my life

Hello, Ana! :)
When I checked today's popular writing, you had four out of the five spots. Somebody's got fans...
I enjoy long hot showers to settle me down. The steam works on wrinkles too.

starch... but a starched life (since I think wrinkles here is not really about clothes) is often dull and boring.. of course it also depends on the wrinkles which could go from malicious to benign... but seen from one view it is how we deal with these wrinkles that determine our character and well being... its those static cling wrinkles that are the ones to really watch out for... they haunt and are the most difficult to smooth out...

unlike clothes, life is complicated, messy, it doesn't cooperate with what we want most times... it just is and we do our best to deal with every wrinkle that comes along... but in keeping with your metaphor, while I have never seen you in a skirt (nor jeans for that matter), and from a very long distance, I think you wear your skirts very well, even with some wrinkles... proof??? the tenor and tone of your poetry Papaya...

sorry if my review is too long and perhaps too serious (I am trying to act my age for once)... and as all have said below, you do pack a big whaloop in so few words...

Nice, says the person who threw away his iron in favour of the lived in look he had become so adept at being :)

You said a lot in so few words. Those wrinkles seem to grow quickly upon the plate of life. Thank you dear friend for sharing your amazing poetry.
