An Event

for Kyle, Luisa, Rishi, Alasdair & Zeke

All that pleasure we took
From spooning ice cream to our mouths

And pizza when the smoke
Clears from decision

And the decisions about decisions--
"youth and consequence"--

I will give myself, I suppose
Until I am thirty-five or so

I may also give up
This "difficult" New York...

But the tousled hair
Of the child who
Has your eyes reminds me

We are all a *potentia*
Happening again
Always happening again.
