    there is nothing you cant do 

    this month marks my 35th summer as a california resident

    in 1984 i had a poster of madonna in a wedding dress on my wall,

    the same one she would grind on at the mtv vmas

    and tonight i watched Lizzo shock the world with a two note flute solo like no other

    on the bet awards, at the microsoft theater,

    an entire complex that didn’t exist last century

    for the entire time that i have been here this is the one thing that i see every day:

    you can do it

    yes you

    look at her

    look at him

    look at them

    you can do it

    yes you can

    how will you do it

    when will you do it

    you dont have to do it

    but youre doing something anyway

    why not do it

    you can do it

    fuck it, do it

    you can do it.

    theres 500 places you can get a taco in LA

    some guy, today, opened the 501st

    you can do it

    he can do it

    you can do it

    look at her do it.

    its in the breeze its in the sky

    there will be one cloud up there

    and it will be shaped

    yes
