On Goodbyes

Popcorn Stand

‘popcorn stand’



my wish is that you always live free

that your wonder never wane

and your smile never fade


that everyone you meet be liberated

long after goodbyes

may you light em all up

as you did me


may you peacefully yet unforgivingly

chase the arcane

and forever walk outside

structures and constructs that constrain




'Little Miss' ⎮ Every student I've ever taught ⎮ And everyone I have ever loved.

Date and time of the image I captured that sparked the written piece. The image was of my daughter ordering popcorn from one of those old-school popcorn stands. She looked up at me and smiled as I captured the image.
