Around Your 30th Birthday

Around your 30th birthday

you will discover that your body 

is not a temple.


It's a den

full of predators.  

And you'll be trying 

to make friends with them

the rest of your life.


Or, at least, trying to keep

them in a deep sleep

by sneaking quietly around


With Xanax and alcohol.
