i have been
friends with adria since last
century and we've spent more
time with her and husband
than our own families—to the point
that we are family. we've
boats, islands, beaches, porches; in clubs,
vans, yards, motels, gardens, and each others'
but this was truly a first, boy in plastic bubble style,
sidewalk outside her
spelling entertained us as stephen hegg
shot footage from the edges, saying it was the most
interesting form of coping he'd
seen all day. in a way, social
distancing has brought us closer than we've
been in a while.
