Living and Not Writing

When I retire and start living
I am going to stop writing and just live
Live, live, live like Auntie Mame 
Or, maybe I will write about living:

Drink margaritas – lime only 
Walk on pristine beach – white sand only
Take three shots of espresso - Cuban only
Read love poems only by Neruda – NO WRITING!
Recite Shakespeare - the comedies only
Cook healthy vegan lunch and do cool yoga

Drink cocktails - with Stoli only 
Listen to Andy Bey and Patricia Barber for hours
Have sequestered time - with the LOML 
Eat healthy vegan dinner and train for something called a 5K
Watch sunsets for longer than one minute
Go to indie films, live theater, hip clubs
And dance all night with buff gay men in briefs only!

I wonder if that is what living will be like.
