In my dreams I am always good enough.

GOOD ENOUGH BY TOMMY VOLLMAN 34THPARALLEL MAGAZINE ISSUE 54

I’ve got ahold of my six-year-old son, and I sure as fuck better not let go because traffic is whizzing both ways on the cross street, and I know from driving that street at that very same time of day that those drivers can barely see me, and they sure as hell can’t see my 50-inch-tall son. My hand is gripping his hand tighter and tighter, and I’m thinking I have to be careful not to break it, but I’m still holding it as if my life depended on it, since it does. And I’m pretty sure now that I’m wrong, this car isn’t going to stop.
