Adulthood — Hour 18

Yes indeed I did it

Went to Denny’s Kihei for

the free Grand Slam on my birthday that year

Didn’t know anyone

Ken was gone

a friendship never to return

A sad-for-myself occasion

Sometimes a freebie comes with a big scoop

of humiliation

when anonymity would be preferred

but calories and sweets

can secretly console
