False Starts



i though i told you i called my brother

       it's hard wishing steven a happy birthday
       knowing he spent the night in the emergency
       room since kidney stones seem to be a side
       effect from the seemingly otherwise effective
       protease inhibitors so the next best thing is
       to ask what's new only to find out jaime's
       surgery's gonna be on mom and dad's anniversary
       only mom never told me about the surgery but
       yeah i guess it is better in a way than wearing
       that brace on her back for four or five years
       like paul had to only i won't ask why if it's
       really better did they give her the brace in the
       first place and yeah i agree adolescence is hard
       enough without this especially in our family but
       then i think sometimes my adolescence was okay only
       maybe because i was unconscious or something and
       maybe that's why mom didn't tell me this about
       jaime or something and no i am fine i mean yeah
       i'm upset but i'll be okay except i feel so far
       away maybe because I am so far away but see
       it's already tomorrow and i am fine i mean i
       seem fine since no one but you and me knows i
       spent the last five minutes in the cereal aisle
       secretly wishing they still made king vitamin
