i don't want to drift with a mayfly;
i want to hiss and claw like the queencat
that sings in alley halls late at night so that
the whole neighborhood echoes with
her anguished caterwauls.
i don't want to settle down slowly;
i want to drive away still, and run
up mountains to touch the sky ceiling,
and chase that never-ending
inarticulate rosebud feeling.
i don't want to watch me suffocate;
heaven knows i've tried my best
unless i never did, and if that's the case
then i'll yield now. better that then to grow
old, and forget what it's like to be a kid.
