Height of summer 1998

searching Camden Market

battling heat stroke and

other people’s opinions.

Treasure was found in

a souvenir shop between

Union Jack hats and

jelly shoes.

The best hug in the world

as I put it over my head

and pulled it down

becoming one with my body

An eighteen year love affair

that had to end

with holes in the sleeves

unhinged seams and

hair dye stains on the hood.
