the Problem with Mr Pan

Oh Peter
you can grow up
without growing old

Time eats away the scarred tissues
the dead layers of integument
gathered like geologic layers
beside the back porch

Peter
fear is never a good house guest
It never knows when to leave
and it goes through your pockets
while you sleep

Pete, buddy
If you don’t get a grip
You become the thing you fear most
