MICHAEL ESTABROOK
Old Thing
I'm sitting with her at my desk, such a beautiful woman, long blonde hair, young, shapely, lithe and lively, Swedish. She's in from the home office helping me to understand and work the new Newsletter Database. (I still find these new-fangled electronic communications tool befuddling.) and she's leaning over me, working my mouse and keyboard, so close, her sweet scent distracting me. Newsletter what? Database what? I'm trying to concentrate but I simply cannot. I'm straining out of the corner of my eye to see who's walking by my office, seeing me with beautiful Mia, envious and wondering how I got so lucky. And I'm thinking no matter how old you get, some things never change, even when you've become a stupid, useless old thing like me. .

ELIZABETH KRONOFF The Flower in Spring
Tangerine and lime she lies languid under tree limbs low, drawing suitors, but she lies when she orders them to go. Flourishing, by her free will, throwing shoulders back, she blooms. Nonetheless she wonders, will she be left when winter looms?
