"...this beautiful white-haired man
who's been sharing my bed."
I was one of the first to know.
Initially it was their sweet secret.
(I understood, was the same
when my own lovely white-haired man....)
They’d known each other long before
their respective widowhoods,
but this new joy was sudden.
“Do you think he loves me?” she asked.
“Have you seen the way he looks at you?” I said.
