Day 20: Birthday Party

Birthday Party

Do you celebrate fully,
counting years like coins,
their weight dropping
between fingers, a stirring
kiss in the back of the cab,
table dancing and toasts 
of whiskey and wine?  Is it
forty, fifty, or sixty when 
you head back, settling into
younger age? What is youth 
serum but to play again?
