Dawson, binged

“You have until April 30 to watch this selection — Netflix”

Older young people play at younger
young people, six episodes a day — 

how did I miss this show?  —

models given the gift of living twice,
darling thieves of wiser words, hard-earned middle-aged 
insight unencumbered by bad knees or hernia,
post-menopausal Truth now un-hot-flashed,
now rehoused in pert vessels of
improbable intelligence —

it’s got to piss you off!
All our bones stolen by 
twenty-seven-year-old
fifteen-year-olds,
un-wrecked Sexy Buddhas 
arsoning our kindling
while we hyper-watch the blaze

before it, too, is taken from us.
