I’m 21, It’s Legal, So What’s the Problem?

— Mike Alvarado

Hey you there!

Explain
to me
why
you can silence
with a whim
my self-expressing, pulsing life?

Hey I’m Here!

Don’t brush away
my rightful speech.
It comes from a
deep, deep place:
the bottom of my glass.

I am serious.
You
have no right
to laud yourself and boast
of your virtue.
Leave me you virtue vulture.
Silence your objections.
Instead,
Be
my friend
not
my oily challenger.
