the horn outside honks non stop

  flow of traffic 

seldom taking a rest

going

going

going

this is a part of my nature

as it is a part of yours

but naturally

 

i hate it

you do too.

we hate the reminders

yes

we are humans now.....       still

 

                      the greatest of all burdens

don’t you know though, 

that when estrogen rises again

in a week

you will glow

just from knowing you are

here
