Life Expectancy

Happy Birthday
to me,
I’ve made it to
33

behind me are:

30,
27,
21,
18,
15,
10

years, numbers,
milestones of survival

I never expected this life that I live;
dismissing the candles for the thought of the wish

and as I ready myself
for the next spin,
I think how funny it is
that carousels should go counterclockwise
