Almost enough

It’s not true that everything was lost in the fire

I could still pass for eighteen

If I didn’t deign to wrinkle myself with a smile

I still have my pet and my lover

It’s the same as it ever was

I still have those jobs I would be so proud of

If my mother never put them down

everything could be almost enough
