Never Growing Up

A favorite aphorism
Of people who patted me
On the head was, "Big things come
In small packages." The damned
Saying made no sense to me,
Who felt the condescension
Without knowing what that meant.

Why did it make me so mad?
Because I was small? Smarter
Than them? Just didn't get it?
I don't know. Didn't know who
I was then. Don't know who I
Am falling apart as now,
But I know smugness fools us.
