Looking Forward to Spinsterhood

I am not going to be the kind of spinster

Who has a slew of photographic evidence

That she has a cat

Or a certificate of achievement

From pottery class

I’m not going to get secretly sad

About someone else’s wedding

I’m more likely to get angry

and shatter a glass

I have a dog, a bicycle

A bikini and sunglasses

That’s the kind of spinster that I am

Smoking cigarettes while practicing

How to turn down men

In exotic languages

Then planning my next trip

So I can use the phrases
