in my life

"there are places
i remember"

and then again
a few places
i don't quite remember

but sitting around
singing these songs
with you,

our hair shorter
and grayer,

with apartments
anything but filthy

and partners
that never witnessed

how much fun
slothlike failure
can truly be
with all of you,

people who wouldn't believe
how incompetent we could be
when together.

beatles rock band
costume parties

and everyone
holds their liquor
like a glass
instead of
sieve or funnel.

we put down
plates of pasta
that far outstrip
the jar sauces
of yesterday,

and laugh like
the twenty somethings
we still are
in each other's
