This Is Twenty-Three

It’s a funny age,

twenty-three,

or perhaps funny isn’t the right word.

and maybe my struggle to find the right word

is exactly what I’m trying to say after all.

and I’ll spend the next hour or so,

writing and rewriting this poem,

trying out different words and phrases,

but ultimately failing to get the words just right,

when all I wanted to say is I don’t know how to be 23.
