They just bulldozed the first In-n-Out
And young actors celebrate at Jakes
While seniors go to BJ’s
And I am home at last.

Babies are born, young hires
come aboard, young actors taste
laughter and applause for the first
but not the last time–
Graduates salute with their caps
retirees cap careers with minute long,
fumbling speeches; and worn out
bodies rest forever
as the cycle repeats

And in this moment
all are one.
And I sleep.

Spring blossoms give way to summer fruit, fall leaves, and winter stalks...gladly and always
