Today’s News



I grew older today.

Today of all days, I just shrunk back

into excited games. And I played.


Today I smashed my chrysalis

with its patina of thirty-six years

and all of their differences.


I looked at my beautiful new wings

but shuddered at my old ones

and all the dust they bring.


I grew closer to me, today.

Much colder, but closer too;

ever closer to just going away.


I grew older today.
