Like Our Parents Before Us

I hear your words
fall out of my mouth
like my teeth did
in that dream
when I was fifteen
and afraid of growing up.
They say
that dream
is normal,
but hearing your words
in my voice
doesn't feel normal
or good
or like I'm becoming
more adult
saying them.
They feel
and just as bad
as they did
the first time
I heard them.
