XXXVII

June 17, 2013

Have I squandered away my youth?
The movies tell me I have.
The novels tell me I have.
Have I squandered away my youth?

My parties involved fragile things—
but teacups, not self respect;
but old books, not broken hearts;
my parties involved fragile things.

I’ve valued my relationships,
but we were never in bed;
and we were never high, yet
I’ve valued my relationships.

If I’ve squandered away my youth,
why do I feel I haven’t?
And why wouldn’t I go back,
if I’ve squandered away my youth?
