Let’s be lovers.

May we shout
the n a s t i e s t names,

Make the best
e x c u s e s,

Brew the most poisonous
j e a l o u s y,

Breed our
s e l f i s h n e s s,

Bring our
w o r s t,

Compete for the most agonized
v i c t i m,

Throw all sarcastic
j o k e s,

Stab each other’s back with various
s h a r p o b j e c t s,

Drink each other’s
b l o o d and t e a r s,

Mourn for each other’s
d e a t h–

c o u n t l e s s times,

yet
still
be
m a d l y
in
love


afterwards.

REMINDER TO EVERYONE WATCHING ROCKNALDO TODAY:

Listen to the boy. Listen to his predictions! He’s gotten it right about the Diamond Authority AND The Human Zoo. 

HE SAYS VALID THINGS!

If my boy goes on about “Upcoming war between  the space rock people and human kind” then kEEP A MENTAL NOTE, DAMNIT.

I’LL KNOW WHEN THE DIAMONDS WILL STRIKE NEXTBECAUSE

i thought about kissing you today
and yesterday
and the day before that.
i know i’ll think about kissing you
tomorrow
and the day after that
and some more days after those days.
i think about kissing you
slowly
and tracing my fingers along
your lips.
i think about kissing you
in your car, in the rain, on your doorstep.
i think about kissing your
dimple, your cheek, your spot.
i think about kissing only you,
not anyone else,
just you.

To the older woman at the dog park,

Thank you. Thank you for being kind to me and talking about life with me. You are so sweet and kind and you could not ever realize how much I needed that today.

After dinner I left my house with my dog, music blasting. I went to the neighborhood park to cry. This whole week has been awful and I just feel like everyone in this world has something against me. I went to go into the dog park and you were there.

You and your perfectly trained golden retriever, we talked, and talked. We talked about dogs and school and life. You must be in your sixteys and I’m in my teens, but our age difference only pulled us together. You talked of a boy who once took you to your homecoming dance and I admitted to you how terrified I was to go to my first.

I left the dog park with a smile on my face. I went home and sat on my back porch with my dog eating ice cream. I let things go.

I am happy. Thank you for helping me realize that there are more important things in life than stupid boys and people who make you feel worthless.

Love,
Grace
