FebPoWriMo 3

Spent a good portion of the evening shocked
at the passage of time namely how much
has passed within our lifetime unnoticed
it must be that past present and future
all happen at once how else to explain
the ennui of your twenties growing up
to be a teenager at the same age
as you were two thirds of your life ago
writing lyrics in your bedroom without
thinking of life insurance benefits
or where you should situate all the stuff
accumulated in a previous
phase you think might be useful as you try
to pass on what it means to be alive
