It’s All In The Wrist

Skipping stones that quickly learn to skim

across the ocean’s tit

rocks that learn to roll with it

slide with the tide

no matter what’s the time

and suddenly you’re forty

and then you’re forty-one

and you hope it keeps going like this forever

until the sea saw that she can’t sustain such a stone

on her liquid bosom forever

and your skipped stone sinks

into this current’s bloodstream

and still you’re forty-two too

and you’re still alive

but you know

you gotta go all in eventually.

    It is nice that you write every year on your birthday. That means you are still young and your mind is still sharp and optimist even you think it’s not. By the way, happy birthday!

      Thank you! I pretty sure I’m an optimist. Getting a year older proves both the optimists right and the pessimists. Still, I’ve read that the optimists have more fun.
