Merced Minutiae

The smell of Food Center

renting movies from Bi-Rite

Quince’s forever

crawdads and Now & Later’s

the Candy Store for raver clothes

splashing into the lake, a jump from the pier

a beach arcade no longer there

when Steven Stayner died

when Stephan Gray died

when Selena died I sat in front of the television

watching Primer Impacto – que tragedia

my dad’s barbeque’s

staring at the blue sky as I laid in the back of his Ranger

as he drove to the lake and knowing in my bones

each turn he made without looking

right on Loughborough

left on R

right on Yosemite

left on N. Lake Road

– it’s the little things.
