not this year

"Do you always wait for the longest day of the year and then miss it? I always wait for the longest day of the year and then miss it."

- Daisy Buchanan in The Great Gatsby

We had our HNY Summer Solstice class last night, so I did not miss it.

The next morning,
I was in my new friend's closet-
fully as large as my bedroom
and with a higher ceiling-
where I admired the yards and yards
of striped and patterned
Etro, Ted Baker, and Paul Smith shirts.

"Stripes and scrolls and plaids in coral
and apple green!" I enthused.
"They'd make Daisy Buchanan cry!"

He didn't get it.
