Old Lady Rap-Back.

Draft #1
Old Lady Rap-Back
I see you
don’t see me
see you dismiss
the miss I used to be
my softness sagging now
my curves
gone to middle thick
I see your gaze
doesn’t stick
on my face
heavy with time’s lines
life’s lies
fate’s tricky licks
you think you got it
rough never enough?
you think that’s new?
my skin went tough
haulin’ my mother lode
up those Sisyphus hills
and as for fuckin’?
I was mouthing it
long before your sorry ass
first passed a gas
but I see you,
hear your fast talk
and I walk
from your easy lines
to make a choice of voice
that says more, more
than you
think
you
know
