Poetry Friday

Parallax

First it was the grocery store clerks,
all of a sudden unexpectedly impossibly young.
"Loosened up the work study requirements, did they?"

Then the professional baseball players on TV.
"Childhood prodigies, must be."

Of late, doctors.
Doctors!
"Dang! It's like Doogie Howser!"


How strange that the world is growing younger
before my very eyes.
