Yesterday I was a year younger.
I pay attention
Because twenty-five was different
In the same way that seventeen
Had its own alterations.
Today it’s twenty-six
Tomorrow it will be thirty-damn-two.
Which will also be different, he said.
But today I’m twenty-freaking-six
And I have the cake to prove it.
