Eighteen

He turned eighteen today
Or so his parents told him
As they drove him to school

“You turned eighteen today”
his friends said happily
“Time of initiation”

He turned eighteen today
And his friends pulled him into a bar
And said, “Cheers dude”

He turned eighteen today
When he downed four shots of tequila
And a dash of ecstasy

He turned eighteen today
Because one man pulled him into a corner
And sealed his lips with a burn

He turned eighteen today
When a man touched him like a rose
And he were bleeding

He turned eighteen today
As he stumbled out the door
Straight on the pavement

“Happy eighteen”
he told himself
and promptly cried
on the asphalt
