I'm Glad

I'm glad that
somehow we ended
up in the desert
at four in the morning
because now I know
the true blues of
pre-dawn.

I'm glad I
attempted to
steal a lemon from
Marilyn Monroe's
neighbor but failed
because I was just
a tad too short.

I'm glad I got
sunburned on the beach
to humble me away from
the notion that I'm small
enough for the
sun to forget.

I'm glad that I could
make everyone laugh
by telling them I used to
make a duck face
instead of a puppy
dog face to get
what I wanted when
I was a kid.

I'm glad I was tossed
around by the waves
feeling for once how
seaweed feels
often.

I'm glad that I managed
to capture the perfect
moment with my friends
on the beach with
impromptu selfies.

I'm glad.
