The meaning of life, discussed over coffee at 11 a.m.

We share a pot and ponder 29.

Then go to the college bar to prove we’re still young
shots all around, ignore the protests,
“I just can’t drink like this anymore.”

I push too hard, pull myself back
flirt with the boy I swear I knew before

Give me a pen and I will check off our conversations
There is no deadline when you know you can’t win.

A penny for your thoughts or a dollar for your life
that’s flying by at lightning speed

I can run 6 miles but I’ll never catch time.
