The yearly greeting, P—

          —Here's to getting older, to not getting sour at people making fun of you!
          —To not getting flattered!

          —To never resorting to deep-fried miracles!
          —To pizza when pizza mattered!

          —When it wasn't guilt, their faces on the window!
          —When it was two people and please we want it in squares!

          —Whenever we'll get around to drinking this!
          —Whenever you're ready!

          —When you're down and out and there seems no—
          —When you're done voicing!

          —To you coming here!
          —To you had you taken my waist when you had the chance!
