#LoIsInDaBL: No Holds Barred Poetry Writing Challenge Day 29

Not Quite a Tanka

Grandpa’s lady friend
commented on my weight loss.
“It don’t mean nothing
if she ain’t got a man.” He’s
still upset I didn’t get my
MRS. degree in college.

—Nortina


This poem is dedicated to my granddaddy, the only man I can count on to buy me a gift on Valentine’s Day.
