I have a friend
who is turning gray,
not just her hair,
and I do not know
why this is so.
Is it a lack of vitamin E
pantothenic acid, or B-12?
Or is it from being frantic
'How long does it take you to love someone?'
I ask her.
'A hot second,' she replies.
'And how long do you love them?'
'Oh, anywhere up to several months.
'And how long does it take you
to get over loving them?'
'Three weeks,' she said, 'tops.
Did I mention I am also
It is because I *adore* this woman
who thinks of love
in this way.
