Poem a Day/ April 29th, 2011 – Peter Schwartz

A VERY PRETEND BIRTHDAY – Peter Schwartz

perhaps i’m not as old

as i seem (i like pretending)

but some nights gone stays

& that bruise that is nowhere

shows up everywhere

an old new city forms like

some stupid starfish & i re-

member only the end of the

alphabet, i start pretending

strangers are ruining my

collection of surf & spring-

boards, turning all my marbles

around, calling me dead again

(i like pretending)
