The Club

I’m a member of a society
I never meant to join.
What does that say about me?
Am I a military wife now?
A stripper?
A mother?
An expat.
Am I one of them?
Or can I remain myself
Though I share their company?
The ghosts of them hover
Above my dreams.
Can I banish them?
Put them to rest?
Do I want to? Yes.

But it’s not my place.
I am one among many.
One day I will also be a shade
And I will float
Above the next.
