Old Friend (for Jace)

You make me smile so hard.
"I know!  I know!"
We commiserate
that our arms grew so long
we finally wear glasses
and we have given up
understanding teenagers.
But when we talk together
we are at once here in the
middle of life
and back at the beginning
where we started:
twenty and in no hurry
to crack open the books after dinner.
