How To Be Old
No fear of old age—a poem
/
Woman on a hospital gurney gives thumbs up. Drawing.
No fear of old age! Thumbs up.

Many people say they have fear of old age, not death or dying. But my role model is the woman who wasn’t afraid of open heart surgery—or loneliness—or lazy brain. This poem has danced off the page and has its own chorus and a subterranean tune.
