I’m not living my life so you can explain me, Leo reads on Leo’s right hand in last night’s dream. Leo goes to the grocery store every day. He steels himself in the aisles—he takes in the misplaced, the overpriced, the loneliness. The girl who tells him where to put his card has a face & Leo looks at his card. Leo wants a baby but it’s just a second tattoo.
