Peter Pan Aging

Peter Pan Aging

“Peter was silent
for a long moment”
—Ridley Pearson, Dave Barry
Peter and the Shadow Thieves 

“You aging humans—
are so very lucky, you know”
Peter said to me

“That’s not what many—
of us Baby Boomers tend
to think though,” I said

Peter Pan shrugged—
The Eternal Boy looked
Deeply into my eyes

“It’s not often,” I said—
“I get to meet the famous
Leader of the Lost Boys”

He grinned at me—
With his stunningly cute
Jeremy Sumpter goodlooks

“If you only knew,” he said—
“I’m eternal on the outside
but I’m ancient on the inside”
