i started the book on the bus this morning. i actually started at the beginning, too, which is something i rarely do in public. i will begin in the middle so it appears i've been reading for a while, finish the book, then go back and read the first half. my vanities are erratic like this.

but i started where i should have this time.
by the time i got off the bus, the air was luxurious like you are skipping school to meet a new lover to go hide in the Tree and kiss.

i walked to work with my hands in my pockets glowing like i had a secret like i had won a million dollars.
i made eye contact with every stranger i passed and smiled like a madman.
