My Peter Pan Complex

I have a Peter Pan complex

cause my name is Peter

and I hang out with ferries

I’m forty

at least that’s what my birth certificate laughs at me

and my back after shoveling snow

but I still have a favorite color

and a favorite baseball player

and a favorite show

and a favorite waste of time

and I find

growing up is such a waste of time

losing the genius of childhood

which has unfortunately become my hobby

cause I practice it more than being a boy

so now my genius plays coy

pretending to be an idiot

and I pretend I can’t see it

while playing peek-a-boo

with my age.
