Cadden, Marie

When the ‘what-if’ in men’s eyes 
shifts to the daughter at your side –
the fledgling
recklessly at ease in skin-tight skin
bursting newfound power –  

concede with grace,  
be glad for crumbs of gallantry, flattery. 
Surface softens and substance sags
but possibilities unwrinkle
with just one wink.
