a series: questions you wish you were asked
i was sitting upon the notion of
"can you remember a thing from each year?"
for at least a few days,
when i was drunk in the car with five friends
and we mused over frank ocean's second studio album.
asked each other: do you know where you were when it dropped?
yes, i was at home but heading out to do homework at starbucks.
we are laughing two hours before sunrise in the east side of las vegas; i feel good.
i wonder if this is coincidence--
the proximity between question and answer--
ruminating on a notion,
then being rewarded.
in seventeen days, the decade ends
(it is december 14th, 2019).
that night, i think in my heart without trying,
giggling at jokes in a too-small altima coupe,
that, yes, i will remember this.
