Know Thyself
by Elizabeth Crocket

When I worked
at the rehab
an older woman
who liked to flash her breasts
told me to be careful
that when she was my age
she began to like Chardonnay
a little too much
but inwardly
my smile was smug
as I knew myself well
and I was strictly
a sauvignon blanc girl

About the author:
Elizabeth writes poetry, haiku and short fiction. She has been published in Roadrunner, Ascent Aspirations, RKVRY online journal, First Thought and more.
