just a kid


when i was so small

i kind of

had this


fantasy of my parents both dying,

driving the car off a cliff

or drowning,

leaving me

a devastated orphan,

and it had a taste

of adventure,

like in the movies.



when my dad actually died,

i just thought, god


would take it all



even after he died,

i played

“stranded orphan”

and pretended to fend for



i never thought of myself as

a half-orphan,

but halfway to being one

just a kid

whose dad died.
