The Age of Unpleasant Surprises
For Stephanie Joyce (a friend)

by Bobbie Troy

When you reach
The Age of Unpleasant Surprises
you will know it

discussions with your
sixty-something friends
and older
will revolve around
broken bodies
broken minds
and broken hearts

but we forge along
through the gray
every day
and are
with the coming
of another dawn
