Peeling An Old Onion

by Jolie Blond

The young woman,
thirty years younger than him,
drops by
night after night,
making small talk,
looking into his eyes,
peeling back layer after layer
of this surprising complex man,
hoping . . .
hoping that
once all the peeling was done
and she had gotten to his center
that there would be something there
worth keeping.
