this blog is being brought to you today by the number 37.

today
i am 37.

because 2007 subtract 1970
equals
37.

years.

i am ok with my age...
because i don't feel any age...
or rather,
i feel a different age every day...
it is squiggly and indeterminable and
liquid, this idea of age...
what is it really?

and why the power?

the number of years, the accumulation of days,
the markings scratched onto the wall of my life
proving that i was here?
but i am here.

regardless of my age.

which is 37.

today.
