Advice to a Young Anything
Because you’ll begin,
before long at all, to see yourself
in the sand box as if it were your memory,
you should keep a journal.
And by hand, on paper. Bound
(to keep yourself honest).
And only allow yourself crossouts–no erasures.
Then you can tell the self you’ll become
not that you saw a man walk on the moon,
but how, as time crawled up to the steps
you sat on the floor in the den
and ate Life, dry from the box.
