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.
