A momentous day for me

I got paid to write something. I was asked to write a short piece on an upcoming play for Seven Days. It's just 400 words, and edited by others, and I really didn't think I would get paid for it. But today I was given a surprise check.

I am a paid writer. I never thought it would happen.

Also, I'm hungover today. I guess it just goes with the territory.

We were just kids

running through the jocular rain,
climbing a slow and creeping vine,
songs against my ears
eager and witty with hilarity
off-the-wall neon voice,
moving, making, massive
or in a place unknown.
space and time raging within
yawning, yearning, there for me
a present yearning of my soul,
a passing or a promise,
angles and lines are beautiful to me,
no dumbing, just funning,
escape--easy or true, i'm with you.
