Grown-up

Was it for this I uttered prayers,
And sobbed and cursed and kicked the stairs,
That now, domestic as a plate,
I should retire at half-past eight?

Edna St. Vincent Millay

There are many fine up-beat poems, but who, past the age of 27, can relate to them? Or maybe it’s just impossible after having children? Or after getting married? Or maybe it’s just February talking?
