no one knows.

oh, audrey, class of 2020 –

this harkens back to my days 

in the 70s

painting on my best friend’s parents’ new car

(my parents said absolutely not)

proudly plastering on

the glory of our days in school

the coming glory of our leaving

driving around all day

in the hot sun

 noticing with surprise

when we scrubbed it all off

 even though the paint was gone

the sun had baked our message on

the marks from the paint remained

never able to be truly washed off

memorializing our message into eternity

 my friend’s parents with an equally surprised reaction

 at least audrey painted on the windows, not the body

she will go far, that one.

that moment

when you go to the grocery

to get some ice

for your food

after a wild and windy rainstorm

knocked your power out

 you pull out your bags of ice

only to find

a secret ice cream stash

placed there by a brilliant grocery worker

hidden for later

and your day is made.

superpowers.

Standard

the grandies offered me a chance

to choose my superpower –

flight, strength, invisibility, speed, or shape shift?

i chose invisibilty

got inside of the machine

they powered it up

when i came out

they confirmed that i was now invisible.

except for my feet

which did not fit in the box.

i can live with that.

some ideas,

like warm cookies and milk delivered to you

at your house or your dorm

until 3am,

are simple,

and just brilliant.

IMG_0821Insomnia Cookies was born out of the dislike of heavy meals late at night, love of food delivery, and the realization that by the time you get hungry at night, nothing is open. The concept was founded by Seth Berkowitz in 2003 from his dorm room while attending the University of Pennsylvania. Berkowitz started baking and delivering warm cookies to students late-night on campus… and Insomnia Cookies was born.

and now, when i see the truck heading out through the streets of ann arbor, i smile every time.

I travel like a rapper, but without the artillery.

We don’t carry guns, we carry cookies.
