for Kay Sandoval...
we sat down at a table
sat at many times before
frequent lunches spent between us
frequent stories shared and more
swapped over egg drop soup and wontons
laughter, glowing, warmly streamed
across our tales of the mysterious and the silly
and everything in between
we chose to support each other
through every kind and cruel of weather
we walked together
to our "usual"
sushi lunch spot
donned with a best friend.
