Running With Abandon

"for some reason
this reminds me of you,"
he said.

and as she gazed at the image
on the birthday card,
she couldn't stop giggling.

because, he was right,
this was definitely her
when she was four.

so, with card in hand,
she took herself into the city,
vowing to buy the biggest hat
she could find.

upon finding it
she decided to wear it about town
while she hunted down a cheap taco stand.

she hoped it would have really good salsa.
