a sweet girls brother died today


she’d been crying all day when she finally called me

then she cried more.

he was exactly the type of fellow that you’d expect to go out like this

yet when it happens it’s still a big sad terrible shock.

plans have to be made. people fly out. Sadness everywhere.

she wants to do a paddle out.

It’s a surf thing. You spread their ashes at sea.

at sunset.

I knew there was a reason it’s supposed to be 90 on Wednesday.
