Another Year

Youth fades.
Age requires safety.

Youth skates on the highway.
No lesson required
for popping

Age forgets the need for speed
embraces greed
loses patience,

and adopts the right to complain
of aches and pains –
to be a patient.

Think I’ll go pop a wheelie
and a bottle of wine.

See the explosion.
Be the cause.

Mimic youth and bravery.
