Poem #13

August 1994

For high school
graduation my

gave me and
my best friend
a trip to Hawaii

we had never
flown and
traveled all by
ourselves before

every morning we
would wake up in
the hotel and she’d
tell me her dreams

long narrative tales
the best one about
being a UPS driver who
went to a Hollywood party

with Keanu Reeves and
made fun of Lisa Loeb
only to discover Lisa was
there a guest at the party

In this same dream
Keanu asked my friend
Are you Buddhist?
And she answered
No I’m just passionate
