All Grown up and no place to go


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?

by Edna St.Vincent Millay

I remember belly crawling up the hallway. When I get to the living room I slowly make my way to a spot under the end table where I curl up tight. I point my face toward the TV and smile. My parents are making out on the couch above me. I don't remember what show was on, I didn't care. I was up, and I wasn't supposed to be.
