My First Shower

A writing prompt for Poetry Breakfast, May, 2017

 

Wedding showers, full of balloons,
wrapping paper and ribbons.
Games and silly entertainment
Build a wedding dress from a roll of toilet paper.

Baby showers, full of balloons,
wrapping paper and ribbons.
Games and silly entertainment
Name picking and guess the date of birth.

Joyous occasions, rituals and customs
that mark passage to new adventures and escapades
that change one’s life forever.

Married twice in a judge’s chambers.
Opting out on having children.
Still waiting for my first shower.
