I’m thinking about what it means to be ‘dazed and confused’
and that is still a very common way to describe the headbutt of youth
sometimes I think that actually just comes from trying to look at everything at the same time
like our brains can’t handle how big the world is once they start to see it all
and if you grow out of the confusion, it’s only because you’ve learnt
or been told what to focus on, to streamline the view

I want to watch all of the coming of age movies ever
I want to be the star of at least ten coming of age movies
I want to be the Molly Ringwald of now
is that just Miley Cyrus?
I think I’m too old for that already.

I thought that I should get my mother a gift today
To say ‘Thank you for undergoing fourteen hours labour
For pushing my gasping little coneheaded blue body into the world
This is your birth-day, too, and you deserve it much more than me.’

I forgot, of course.
