and their dog.
az :: ca :: az
rad shoppe owners with tattoos and vinyl for days
famous people i don't recognize
(story of me & ca)
lister : mr A : retna : revok : rime
thai food porch nights
ciggies and whiskey
and again, good company
sunday night martinis
open window sleeps
feeling safe in my lover's arms
peets and treats and driving la
the most nervous belly of my entire life
Désolé, je ne parle pas français
stamps and money and envelopes
fingerprints and 'please no smiling'
waiting, and yet more waiting
so many thoughts
barefoot beach walkin
polaroids and hashtags
thrift thrift thrift
heels and treasures and parking meters
one last walk
tours on pieces of me
thrift thrift score
driving away from the setting sun
books on tape
my favorite friend

today is flag day.
incidentally, it's also my estranged father's birthday.
when my dad was a little boy,
his parents always told him that everyone put their flags out for his birthday.
it wasn't until years later, in high school when he learned the truth.
even as a little girl,
i remember him getting up early to put up the flag.
he'd always say,
"gotta get the flag up for my birthday,
see...everyone else is."
(referencing the other early rising neighbors).
i don't think of my dad often.
sure, i wonder where he is, and how he's doing.
i wish him well and hope that he's happy.
but every year on flag day,
i can't help but think:
"yeah, those are for my dad"

and if at first you don't succeed,
until it kills you.
decide what to be and go be it.
be a person that you'd be proud of.
in love, in life, in pursuit.
we are all so very capable of greatness.
