I bought a book this morning

that just came out

written by a young woman

my daughters’ age

which I try not to do

or to listen to music that’s for them

or watch what they’re bingeing on.

I don’t watch Saturday Night Live either because

if I’m watching it at 73 is it contraband anymore?

Kids and grandchildren need contraband.

When I was home from college and

getting ready to go out and

had The Mamas and The Papas on

the record player

my father didn’t 

stick his head

in the door and say

he really liked that new song

that Mama Cass was belting out. 

He probably just wished

I’d turn it down.
