I want to remember your voice, breath, & body. I want to live the fuck out of this thing that doesn’t fit into anything else. I want the rain to be blood & the blood to be brains & the brains to shut the hell up on a Friday night. I want to kiss your bathroom mirror in the dark. I open a beer because it sounds close. Everyone is more honest when they’re alone.
