No pimped out pocket rocket.
No selective serotonin reuptake

or magic carpet rides to the front steps
of your posh brownstone, permission slip
pinned to your pima, wine-dyed tuxedo shirt.

Update

This fledgling poem was finally finished and retitled “Caveat“. It’s published in Midlife Crisis Postponed, a you can listen to a slightly daze-drunk-exhausted audio reading here.)
