Jennifer Firestone, “How to Treat a Woman”

Category : Women, Writing

hips, thighs, hindquarters
grapefruits in grocery bags
skin cells
osteoporosis, presbyopia
estrogen
Snow won’t fall in that crystal ball
memory
hair,
fur, face, chin
spots
poundage
A peep is a sound
Bed, sciatic
muscle, sex
color, sweat.
The package tape ran out years ago
By six years
outlives every species
except birds
(flight syndrome)
She’ll need a slow hand a slow hand
