My Happines Poem for Bryan

It's way past my shift and I am still here at the diner singing a happy love song over and over.... and it makes me want to write a poem about how I feel today.

Like sunshine 

and marshmallows

And freshly squeezed orange juice

Like the smell of the dock
At the back of my grandfather's beach house
On a Sunday...

Like pink, red, orange and blue dragonflies
I used to catch at the playground

I kept them safe in between my sweaty little palms

Like hugs from Yumpkin

And a spoonful of Mama's yema

Like staying up all night talking
With your best friends in a tent

Or jamming with Utoy while eating manga't bagoong

On a summer at home

This is how I feel today
And I know it's not just because of the chocolate cake...

I just ate
