We were such serious young things
Refuges beneath the shrubs, keeping low
Wanting not a thing
Like dusting carpets in the sun, resin of, wonder of
A paradisal glow, our sober eyes a bloodied nose
Running for the door

I drive around the town where we learned to speak
Streets that were eons more years before
I remember Ice cream cones the vastest lawns swimming pools
Settings for our grandiose pursuits

How we rated everything from one to ten
White and black and all unfilled

Growth spurt my aching joints, pressure points, shrinking clothes
Transcend a thousand marked lines, on the door
I was taller every time

How we rated everything from one to ten
White and black and all undone
