nowhere near being considered young

by J.J. Campbell

you'd love to wish
on a shooting star

but when you're on
the other side of the
circle it's amazingly
difficult to stay up
that late

it's all a trap you
keep telling yourself

not old enough to
be old but certainly
nowhere near being
considered young
by anyone desirable

too many years of
rejection keeps you
in the house

trying to find
comfort in scantily
clad women who
speak nothing but
broken english

a friend tells you
this is no way to
live a life

you scratch another
name off the list

laugh at how much
room there is on it
