this getting older thing

around twelve or thirteen

it feels like it will take forever

until you get to do the exciting stuff

drink drugs cars motorcycles

the sex thing

in five years or less

these things begin to happen

then your twenties arrive

& suddenly

responsibilities you were warned about

begin to be piled on

rent gas electric water bills the job thing

& the pile grows slowly inevitably

the forming long relationships

ending relationships

properly working out the sex thing

your roles plays wants & real needs

& then the thirties become more of the same

but the game/s get/s older quicker

& time goes so fast

& you wonder where

your dreams

have gone
