Growing Up

Here’s the thing — you don’t
want to do this, ever. 
Keep your myths close
and your parents
closer.

This stuff of aging
happens in darkening
rooms, spaces overfull
with distant relatives and
peeling photo albums.

When you get home,
your bath feels too 
scalding, so you
let it drain slowly,
silently, and 
then sit in
the empty tub.
