Form

I sat with the two of them today, and it felt old
The order was old, and the couch was old, and the conversation was old
And the three tissue papers have no excuse for the way they always sit like that on the table

We talked about people, and writers, and professors
And we talked about our parents
And it was freeing like you imagine it will be freeing
When you’re fourteen and you hope that the friends you make in college
Will be the ones you’re saving yourself for
