i was thinking?

our last family christmas card
was this snap from 72nd & riverside
circa. december 2007:

so after our watermelon-y picnic
on the mountaintop,
before we hopped on the ski lift
to head back down for some alpineslide fun,

daddy was about to take a picture
of our fam and in onesplitsecond,
i thought,
‘hey, same spots as the last one!’

so we tried to remember who was in

the hill may be alive
with the sound of cates-es,

but it originated on
the grittybeautifulasphalt streets
we love dearly.
