Day One Poem

Happy birthday

The second decade of existence
Is at threat of paralyzation
by light
your words and seductions barley surface
before the winter takes them
petrified in ice
A 20th year of life
marks the beginning of this inward activity
phycological Olympics
we dance for points
only to be met the frightening fact that
the seasons do not stop for us
and so the pilgrimage continues into the 21st year
we look at one another
how loose it feels
our sentences, and our ease of acceptance
this must be it
I wonder if it is this true necessity
true beauty
and tread marks of the mind
that fits so well
like watching a film
or looking into another’s window
happy birthday
