Talkin’ Bout Their Generation

For men of an age
all tales are ones of reminiscence
and too often, conquest
their current worth, perhaps
in units of honies
and trash cans of whopatooli
these are their manful tales
memories that help to fortify
a diminishing virility

I do not want to become
one of these men
of an age
for my value
to be wrapped up
in a kind of
masculine equity
once purchased in decaying desperation
whose value is now raised by gentrification
to be sold in stories parceled
to a younger generation
