Gray at Twenty-One

twenty-first birthday
too cool to let friends drive
judgment impaired
prodigal still lives at home -
dad will bail him out

               GRAY

graying through his teens
black and white never defined
consequence, foreign
the judge’s guilty verdict
shakes his foundation


Philosophical
