BEING A MAN HERE

In Quad 8
live eight women
and four men.

 

I  just came home
from a birthday party
where there were
seven women
and I was the only man.

 

I’ve known for years
that women outlive men
but I never felt it before.

 

It matters
and I’m not sure why.

 

Should I rejoice
that women abound here
and I’m around to know it?

 

I’ve never been much
FOR MEN ONLY
