after the fireball passes
unknown

you can't remember
 1
what it was
 2
to be eighteen
 3
 
 
but you know
 4
any magic
 5
is in youth
 6
 
 
and the way teenage girls
 7
behind cash registers
 8
regard you
 9
with all the longing
 10
of tree sap
 11
and turtle shit
 12
makes it clear
 13
 
 
you're
 14
shot.
