Sublime sun on sidewalk and brunch for two near the park. It is summer and you should be happy. You are with people you love who love you. Delirious moments will pass you by so maybe stop and just, like, look. Listen. Suppress the sickness and anger and heat. Chill.

A pile of blue trash bags glows in the sunlight on a sidewalk, a big brown tree branch in the middle, and an aluminum Coors beer can that says “Chill” in a red cursive script.
