Memorial Day went like this

Good morning, lovely, let’s make each other mixtapes, let’s roam the alleys in search of sunbaked kisses, let’s walk from Logan Square to Andersonville stopping at one, two barbecues and learn about the neighborhoods spread like quilts past the edges of our daily commutes. Let’s grill tofu dogs and beer-can chicken, remember the sunscreen after the nose burn, knock back beers before they grow warm, wear big sunglasses like we’re hiding from the press, lay in the cool grass and flick bugs off our knees, have more, have more, have more.
