The week before summer ended Danny and I were swimming in Runyan Lake It was beginning and end of all things and we both felt change coming, like the passing of seasons was a banner or a tide Danny was on the verge of dropping out of high school, and I could not talk him out of it I felt like a failure I pulled the water around me like a shield, and tried to take it all in The sun dragging the sky in streaks of orange and yellow, the lake water warm like bath We stayed in the water until it was dark
There is a picture of Jeff, me, and you standing on the docks of Long Beach Harbor, like we had discovered it or conquered it on our own (as though we were Spanish explorers claiming it for the Queen) My hair was longer then It was right before the Fourth of July (my brother's birthday) in 2006 Our lives were packed into our car We could have gone anywhere We had torn roots, we were unbound We were seeking truth There was beauty everywhere and endless possibilities to tie ourselves to In the coming months, thing would come undone and our carefully laid plans were laid to rest But I would not trade it all for a chance to try again- I wore it instead, I hung it around me until I could not fit myself into that frame anymore When we came back home, we were so lost It was a while before we saw beauty anywhere
