I've been really into ice cream lately. middle child, 24, gulf coast
Somewhere on a desert highway
She rides a Harley-Davidson
Her long blonde hair
Flyin' in the wind
She's been runnin' half her life
The chrome and steel she rides
The very air she breathes
The air she breathes.
One time I kayaked about a mile down to the bridge to take video of my little sister diving off of it, a tradition out at the lake house. I decided she’d pull me back, me in the kayak, her, a combination of walking and swimming back to the house. She agreed.
Then about halfway home we were getting goofy and switched spots.
I thought I was being funny when I flipped her over, but my camera was in the kayak… and it was lost forever. Along with all of the five-star footage I shot of her diving that afternoon. And of mom belligerently drunk on the fourth of July.
