I am in a bedroom in a house in San Diego where my parents live. The
bedspread is ugly but the pillows are good.
I never lived in this house. There are things of mine here. Some books,
a purse, an aggressively shoulder-padded shirt from the 90s. My mom. My
A dog who has been here a long time. A new dog. A dog gone. I've looked
for him a few times. I don't want to hold it against the new dog. She
is sweet. I won't love her.
There is a swimming pool here. It rained today. My dad said yesterday
Tomorrow will rain again. I will swim in the pool. Water on
water leaves a person the same amount of wet. I leave for home in two
and a half days.
Bring your swimsuit. We'll
do cannonballs off the side.
