– well-meaning phone calls –

Rolling my eyes at my elders…

disrespect I do not mean.

Rolling their words through my ears for this year,

I’m sure it comes off as mean, but it

sounds like the same words, the chirps from the same birds

that I have always heard and hear.

Rolling away soon enough to L.A.,

no matter how well they mean.
