I am jealous of her wrinkles,
Stories hidden in the crinkles.
Where she’s been,
How she got there.
The shoes she walked in.
How she wore her hair.
All the colors she dyed.
All the new things she tried.
I don’t know why.
but it’s why I care.
I wouldn’t mind being her age now,
If I could be in the past somehow.
If I got to live that way.
And wear her dresses,
In those days.
As I sit across from her on the train,

Admiring her wrinkles.
